Default Stellarium

"Stellarium is a free open source planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope.

It is being used in planetarium projectors. Just set your coordinates and go."

Download

A very impressive and enjoyable piece of software. Your local longitude & latitude are available at any internet weather site.
