Stellarium is a virtual 3D planetarium program. By installing this application on your computer, you will be able to observe the starry sky, approaching and removing objects on it. The Stellarium comes with a catalogue containing about 600,000 stars. You can also download additional catalogues that include more than 200 million stars in total. The panorama of the starry sky is displayed in a realistic way, based on the geographical coordinates you have entered and the time of day. The program is able to display sunsets and dawns, the moon and the solar system, meteors, the Milky Way and other objects that you can see in the real sky. In addition, you can enable azimuth and equatorial mesh display, adjust star blinking, emulate eclipses and supernovae. The program provides the widest possibilities for setting up a virtual planetarium - you have the ability to customize landscapes and transparency of the atmosphere, add images of nebulae, use the wide-angle lens "fisheye" and much more. Stellarium supports a variety of plugins that allow you to display artificial satellites, control a virtual telescope, etc. The program can be controlled via the command line and has a built-in scripting engine - scripts for it you can download from a special repository.

Stellarium is a great and free software to explore the night sky. The graphics are stunning and the program is very user-friendly. Zoom and panning are smooth and you can easily identify stars and constellations. It also offers a variety of catalogs and layers of information. The 3D environment is very realistic and the time control is great. You can also configure the software to show you dates from the past and the future. There is a vast amount of information available and it’s easy to navigate. The biggest downside is that you may need some time to get familiar with all the features and settings.
