Stellarium 1.1.1 – Free Planetarium

Stellarium is a free open source planetarium for your PC. Representation renders 3D photographs sensible skies continuously with OpenGL. It shows a sensible sky in 3D. Very much like what you see with the unaided eye, optics, or a telescope.

Stellarium shows stars, heavenly bodies, planets, clouds, and other things like ground, scene, climate, and so on There is a capacity to add new planetary group objects from online assets.

You can add your own profound sky objects, scenes, group of stars pictures, and scripts. The module framework adds artificial satellites, visual reproduction, and telescope setup and that's only the tip of the iceberg.

Stellarium is accessible for Linux, Unix, Windows, macOS, and Android. It is being utilized in planetarium projectors. Just set your directions and head.
