  Stars 3D

A freeware tool to explore constellations and nebulae

Stars is a personal 3D telescope that allows the comfortable exploration of the most beautiful nebulae and constellations formed in our galaxy, in high resolution. The Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, the Butterfly and Horsehead nebulae are just a few of these amazing star patterns and cosmic structures that can be seen in great detail with just a few mouse clicks. Loop function, zoom in and out and basic information about each star structure you are exploring: some of the most important features of this free application. Please notice that a constellation is a group of stars that forms an imaginary outline or pattern on the celestial sphere, while a nebula is an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases. There are more than thirty pictures that were adapted and edited for this application; all the original images have come from these important sources: NASA, the ESA/ Hubble telescope www.spacetelescope.org and the ESO observatory www.eso.org. Space key acts like a toggle button, it changes the application's main menu on and off. Also, a popup menu is displayed when you press the right mouse button.
