  • The simulation contains several paragraphs of informational text and a Mars environment the user can traverse. There are 4 different types of rocks and there are 10000 of them scattered over the virtual terrain, which has been designed in a "crater" topography.

  • A hi-resolution 3D Moon globe you can easily rotate, zoom in and out with your mouse.

  • A rolling 3D solar system with all the planets and some big moons orbit. If you have a fast computer - set 'True Worlds'-option 'On', and you will not be disappointed. Supports full screen resolution 800x600 up to 1600x1200.

  • Software to turn a simple 2D image of a planet or the moon into a “3D” image. Animations can be saved in AVI.

  • 3D Starchart as the name implies is a 3D astronomy program, which runs on the BeOS.

    Unlike conventional starchart software, 3D Starchart lets the user step away from the sun frame-of-reference and view the universe in 3 dimensions.

    Note: requires R4.5. Intel version.

  • Accurate Times is the official program adopted by the Jordanian Ministry of Islamic Affairs to calculate the prayer times in Jordan. The program runs under Windows, and it is written by Mohammad Odeh, a member of the Jordanian Astronomical Society (JAS), and the Vice-President of Crescents' Observation and Mawaqeet Committee, of the Arab Union for Astronomy and Space Sciences (AUASS).

    Accurate Times calculates the following astronomical events:


    Aciqra (uh-SEE-kruh) is a free and open source virtual planetarium and sky mapping program which tracks celestial bodies including planets, deep sky objects and stars to an accuracy of a fraction of a degree for thousands of years into both the future and the past. Read more about Aciqra...

  • Package for integrating observatory instruments into a unified system. The design goal is to hide all the details if acquiring images. Just tell ACP what you want, and it knows how to do it!

    It can handle complex LRGB astrophotography, asteroid searching and follow-up, photometry data acquisition, in short, all of your astronomical imaging needs. Pointing, guiding, focusing, filter changes, image stacking... the entire process is managed by ACP.

  • Aladin is an interactive software sky atlas allowing the user to visualize digitized images of any part of the sky, to superimpose entries from astronomical catalogues or personal user data files, and to interactively access related data and information from the SIMBAD, NED, VizieR, or other archives for all known objects in the field.

    Aladin is particularly useful for multi-spectral cross-identifications of astronomical sources, observation preparation and quality control of new data sets (by comparison with standard catalogues covering the same region of sky).

  • Alcyone Ephemeris is an accurate and fast astronomical ephemeris calculator covering the period 3000 BC to AD 3000. It calculates heliocentric, geocentric, and topocentric positions of the Sun (Earth), Moon, planets, minor planets, comets and fixed stars in ecliptical, equatorial, and horizontal coordinates (including angular differences between two bodies), with optional corrections for parallax and refraction; rectangular coordinates, velocity, apparent diameter, magnitude, phase, lunar libration, orbital elements, differences for all of these, and more.

  • It allows the creation of a complete astronomical almanac for a selected location. Calculates the positions of the Sun, Moon, planets and asteroids. It determines the instants of the more important celestial phenomena and particularly of the eclipses of the Sun and Moon for any given locations. Automatically draws charts of the apparent paths of asteroids, comets and planets, and of the solar eclipses paths over the Earth.

  • "The almanac module for the DRUPAL CMS provides twilight times, sunrise/set and moonrise/set data for any location. This can be a useful addition to sites that include astronomy, religious, education, energy-related, weather, or astrology information. Sites devoted to a range of outdoor activities, from night photography to fishing, can also benefit from adding an almanac.

  • Tool for celestial navigation. Almicantarat proposes a sky chart; keeps, reads and manages a list of measurements made; calculates the necessary corrections; calculates the celestial position accordingly; plots the points and lines of position over a map canvas.

  • Multipurpose planetarium. One of the best around, and still getting better... The organization of the menus is particularly innovative and the graphical display options very flexible. The negative point is its slowness, particularly with all the design trimmings activated; also, it does not allow direct printing.

    On the graphical side, it offers the classical representation of the celestial sphere; the situation of the sky over the local horizon; elongations and heliocentric position of the planets and a tool to draft/register your sunspot observations.

  • Altair is an astronomy calculator for Windows. Altair calculates Local Sidereal Time, Julian Date, Universal Time, RA/DEC to Alt/Az and Alt/Az to RA/DEC

    Includes built-in object and location databases. Prints the results. Allows any date between 1900 and 2100.

  • Andromeda Sky View is a planetarium software, that can show you an interactive sky map on your Windows Mobile device.

    Program features:
    - big number of objects: 300 000 stars, 14 000 deep sky objects,
    - internal help and photos of Messier and Caldwell objects, internal search,
    - possibility to work on any Windows Mobile devices (PDA's with QVGA and VGA support and screen rotation, Windows Mobile Smartphones).

  • Astronomy Picture of the DAY is a website hosted by NASA/GSFC and maintained by professional astronomers who pick a new exciting beautiful astronomy picture everyday. APOD software brings it one step further, setting those daily pictures, optionally with their scientific explanation, as your desktop wallpaper.

  • «APOD Grabber is a little application that gives you the ability to quickly and easily view, browse, and download images from NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day web site. APOD Grabber also shows you all the proper credits, explanations/descriptions, and provides a link to the viewed image’s specific web page. You can also set the current image as your desktop picture with the click of a button!»

    Requires Mac OS X 10.1 or higher.

  • APT - Astro Photography Tool is an application that allows controlling Canon EOS and ASCOM compatible CCD cameras and is completely designed with astro imaging in mind. The focus of this tool is to automate the control of your camera, to help in almost all stages of your imaging session, to preserve the dark adaptation of your eyes and to bring all this packed in flexible and easy to use form.

  • CAD program created using the Artemis system  for the simulation of appearance of star charts.

    By offering centralized management of object catalogues the program facilitates the comparability of analyzes and ensures that the most current data is used. 

    Supports the control of telescope mounts using the LX-200 and Celestron NEXStar protocols.
