CyberSky (32-bit) v3.2 Description:
transforms your computer screen into a planetarium, allowing you to learn about astronomy by exploring the sky in the past, present, and future. It displays accurate charts of the sky as seen from any location on Earth. You can view the sky from any of the nearly 1,200 locations in CyberSky's location database, or from locations you add yourself. You can choose to view the sky at any date and time from 4000 BC to 4000 AD.
Sky charts can include stars, constellations, deep sky objects, and solar system objects, and can be enhanced by the addition of labels, coordinate system grids, and reference lines.
You can easily change your view of the sky, search for celestial objects, and display data about those objects. CyberSky also prints attractive sky charts that you can take outside with you.
You can learn the names and positions of the stars, constellations, and deep sky objects, and become familiar with the motions of solar system objects across the sky using the animation feature. Many interesting astronomical phenomena can only be observed over weeks or months of time, and by observing the sky from widely separated locations. And CyberSky lets you do this.
CyberSky was designed to be simple enough to appeal to people who are just beginning to discover astronomy, yet provide enough information for professional astronomers.
