Learn About The Stars In The Sky With Open Source Program Stellarium

Filed under
Software

You’ve probably stared at the night sky at some point or another, wondering what all their names are and what stars actually make up which constellations. I’ve wondered about this many times, and honestly I still do. But my curiosity can now be quenched thanks to a fantastic open source program that delivers in spectacular fashion.

Stellarium was actually covered by MUO back in 2009 (back when IE6 was still used fairly heavily), and as all open source projects are, enough things have changed for it to be reviewed once again. Although the interface and basic program usage hasn’t changed, there are still some noticeable differences.
