    Paul Neave has designed an online planetarium that allows you to explore the night sky.
    Not only can you set your location, but you can also see the position of the constellations, planets, moon and sun for any given time and date.

    Planetarium - Interactive star map and virtual sky

    Have fun!


    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    ~ Arthur Schopenhauer, The Art of Being Right: 38 Ways to Win an Argument (1831), Stratagem XXXVIII.

    That is very similar to a free app you can get for windows 8.

    Its in the app store or you can get it here SkyMap Free | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    I've been using it for a while when it is cloudy and I wanna look up some constellation. You can click on individual stars and it will tell you their names and other info about them.

    But the online planetarium is way better since you can get it without being unfortunate enough to be sucked in to buying windows 8
    Speaking badly about people after they are gone and jumping on the bash the band wagon must do very well for a low self-esteem.
