Hey ppl i DL this and its pretty easy to use.
I just went out and looked at the sky that was the same as the sky on the monitor.
very cool.
Free too (i think)

Just choose your location on the side menu

http://www.stellarium.org/

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.



Do yourself a favour.

Obviously you're just being be a dick, but this software is pretty useful for working out the coordinates of faint objects to later point a telescope or long-exposure camera at - since you won't be able to spot the objects with your naked eye.

This software would be great for Schools.
By using social media and this software a teacher could be explaining to kids in their own homes what they are seeing.
