Starry Night Enthusiast is perfect for learning your way around the night sky. With it you can view the sky as it will appear from your very backyard or from any planet.

See the sky tonight, the sky last week, next year, or when you were born. Have Starry Night Enthusiast automatically identify constellations as you look at them. Use Starry Night's exclusive connection to bring up more information from the web on thousands of objects.

Starry Night Enthusiast includes over a million stars, all the planets, positions of the Messier objects and stick figures of all the constellations. Travel in time from 4713 BC to 9999 AD and even see what the night sky looked like on your birthday. Watch phases of the moon, trace orbits of planets and comets, blast off and visit a planet or star up to 20, light years away, make QuickTime movies and more!

Location Markers can now be assigned to any predefined location on Earth or any other planet
