The PC Planetarium

"The sky is the ultimate art gallery just above us."
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

When I was a child, my great-grandfather showed me constellations and the planets. Only a few actually are imbedded in my memory, but the experience will last throughout my lifetime.

If you are out camping, traveling or in your own backyard, taking time to view the night sky, a window into the omniscience of God.

Stellarium is a free planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope.  Just set your coordinates and go. http://www.stellarium.org/
