Stellarium is a free open-source planetarium for your computer. Visualization renders 3D photo-realistic skies in actual time with OpenGL. It shows a practical sky in 3D. Just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars, or a telescope.

Stellarium displays stars, constellations, planets, nebulas, and different things like ground, landscape, atmosphere, etc. There is an ability to add new solar system objects from online resources.

You can add your deep-sky objects, landscapes, constellation images, and scripts. The plugin system provides artificial satellites, ocular simulation, telescope configuration, and more.

Stellarium is available for Linux, Unix, Windows, macOS, and Android. It is being used in planetarium projectors. Just set your coordinates and go.
