Here, I just want to recommend a very useful, excellent software that you all can download.
This software is actually a virtual sky, considered it as a planetarium. It shows stars, planets, galaxies, nebulaes, comets and constellations of the stars in 3D. Choose your current position (lat. long.) in the world and you'll be mesmerized by the real time position of the night sky. You could even see the position of the earth or any other planets in a different planet or moon!
Stellarium is a free open source planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope.
It is being used in planetarium projectors. Just set your coordinates and go.
Available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, you could download it for free!
So why not download it now! I had tremendous fun using it! It was exhilarating!
