Stellarium Gives You a Planetarium in Your Own Computer

Check Out the Universe From Your Desktop With Stellarium

I love heading to the planetarium since it's the only place I can really see the stars through all the lights of the city. But making the trek out there (and paying the entrance fee) makes this a special occasion destination. However, I can still get the same cool effects at home with Stellarium.

A free download, Stellarium lets you browse the universe, see the stars from your current coordinates, and even sit back and check out the sights from the Mars Rover. In a way, it's better than the planetarium, since you can look for specific stars and planets, and match up the constellations to the signs of the zodiac.
