A three-dimensional astronomy program

Celestia is a three-dimensional astronomy program that was first released in 2001. Celestia allows users to traverse space, weaving through the stars and the plants as they race through the night sky (at any speed they wish) and study the universe in fully rendered 3D. It is available for the Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac and Linux Operating Systems.

Celestia is a complex and beautiful program that displays all of the stars in the Hipparcos Catalogue (also know as HIP). The catalog includes over 11.000 stars and Celestia displays them accurately. It also includes all of the plants and information their orbits and their moons. Celestia also renders asteroids, comets, satellites and more. If it’s in the sky then it will be in Celestia.

If you have always dreamed of being an astronaut, of flying through the empty and mesmerizing void of space and the great unknown, then Celestia could be perfect for you. This complex, beautiful and accurate program can be traversed using simple keyboard commands and controls.
