Editors' review

Stargazing is an amazing hobby, but the weather isn't always perfect for it. With Stellarium for Mac, users can now explore the galaxy anywhere, anytime.

The installation of Stellarium for Mac takes no time at all as it requires a simple drag and drop into the Applications folder. Once you launch the app, you will be greeted with a night sky full of stars, which looks really amazing. If you want to see more stars you can simply zoom in. The application reminded us of the Night Sky feature from Google Earth. One of the advantages of this app is that it works even when it's offline, which is perfect if you're taking your Mac far out of town. You can click on the star/galaxy to learn more about it and it'll show you its current angle, position, and how far it is, etc. The app is quite complex, as well. The interface lacks descriptions and there are no tutorials available, but there's a PDF guide available for download on the developer's Web site. There is also an IRC channel full of passionate people who are willing to help out, so you may have to ask for help; but there are options if you get stuck.

Since Stellarium for Mac is a multiplatform and open-source app, there's a huge community supporting it. If stargazing is your passion, you'll definitely feel at home here.
