Seeing Stars

This is a wonderful time to see the night sky. In the north, though, the clouds are deep and the bitter cold is not conducive to venturing outside even if the stars were visible.

This is the time of year when I open Stellarium and huddle inside checking the nebulae, constellations and planetary aspects.

This Open Source program never fails to delight and amaze me. My program is configured to open at my exact longitude and latitude to present the view that I would see - if I could see. Stellar. It's easily altered to view the sky from different locations.

Oh, did I mention that this program is gratis? Free? No Charge? And it's worth far more than that.
