Editors' Review

CyberSky provides users with a planetarium right on their computer screens. With options to please newcomers and astronomers alike, this is a great, educational program.

We were instantly overwhelmed with the interface's massive collection of command icons and numbers. However, after taking a deep breath and experimenting for a few minutes, we developed a strong understanding of how everything functioned. We couldn't help but stare at the program's dominating feature, a globe-shaped view of the sky above our home. We ensured this was our night's view after choosing our town from a comprehensive list of the world's cities, and our time and date. We saw outlined and labeled examples of constellations, planets, and comets after choosing specific ones from drop-down menus. Everything was simple to read and looked realistic. We also enjoyed choosing to view Vectors, which show which way each celestial body is moving. The program also provided items that were over our head, but may appeal to seasoned astronomers, such as the Celestial Equator and the Galactic Grid. With a fun animation feature that shows how the night sky will look at specific times, we got a better understanding of the stars above.

CyberSky comes with a 30-day trial. Thanks to its clear labels and tools, we recommend this program.
