About

--

This is not a game. With light pollution, it is getting more difficult to fully appreciate the night sky, see the constellations, and determine the position of deep sky objects, from our pale blue dot. With this planetarium, you can learn and appreciate the beauty of a dark night sky. Amateur astronomers can prepare their observations by having a real sense of where deep sky objects are through virtual reality, without relying on a GoTo mount. The application will be extended with more deep sky images, more deep sky surveys...

"Astronomy compels the soul to look upward, and leads us from this world to another." Plato, The Republic, 342 BCE.
