Quick Overview of the Software in Action

This short video shows how easily the 3D view of our solar neighborhood rotates with a simple click and drag. It also shows how to navigate your way around the software, increasing the scale, reducing the number of stars displayed by type, and the relationship between the close-up Viewing Cube and the broad view Locator Cube. You can see how selecting a specific star reveals details about that star, including its name and related catalog numbers, position, distance, spectral type and other unique details. In the software's Sky Map view, you see the night sky in one of several helpful modes, including Distance mode, where the size of the stars represents closeness, instead of brightness. Even more exciting is the Alien Sky View—showing the constellations as seen from other star systems, including the location of our own sun in those constellations.
