Editors' Review

+
People have always been inspired by views of the night sky. When city lights began obscuring the stars, planetariums were invented, but now software can perform many of the same tricks. Asynx Planetarium is an amateur astronomer's guide, showing the starscape from five earth-bound positions, including the North and South Pole. It gives real-time information on the planets of our solar system, such as azimuth and altitude, and can display the changes in the sky with the virtual time sped up or put into reverse. Another option allows the user to switch among geocentric, heliocentric, and horizontal views of the solar system. All of this said, the program has a badly outdated aesthetic sense, with an irritating banner in the lower-left corner of the interface that adds to the clutter. Nevertheless, the program installs and runs smoothly, taking up little memory. Asynx Planetarium isn't likely to be of much use to professional astronomers, but it could be very interesting for amateur stargazers and students of the night sky.
