Neave Planetarium - kind of like Stellarium, but online

Monday, February 15, 2010

If you ever use Stellarium you'll be happy to know that there's a page online that is quite similar, which has the option of obtaining a permanent link to a certain date and view of the sky which makes it really easy to show anyone what the sky will look like at any time or how to find an object. Playing around with it for a bit for example gives us the night of May 17th this year (or May 16th in North America and possibly Europe), where around sundown Venus will be nice and far away from the Sun, and not only that but there will be a nice crescent Moon there too right next to it.
