It is an easy to use, freely-distributed, multi-platform, open source, software package which has become a valuable tool for astronomy education. Used in homes, schools, museums and planetariums around the world, it also is used as a visualization tool by space mission designers. Versions are available for computers running Windows, Macintosh (Mac OS X) and Linux operating systems. Downloads: http://www.shatters.net/celestia/download.html Although it is optimized for 3D astronomical visualization, Celestia can be used to display and explore other 3D environments, too. And, for some reason, many people seem to find exploring with Celestia to be a lot of fun. Unlike most planetarium software, Celestia doesn't confine you to the surface of the Earth. You can travel throughout the solar system, to any of over 100,000 stars, or even beyond the galaxy. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
