Planetarium is an application for the Palm Connected Organizer that plots star charts and offers some unique, useful features for the beginning star gazer as well as for the professional astronomer.
It calculates the position of the sun, the moon, the planets, up to 9000 stars, hundreds of deep sky objects, comets and asteroids for any time and any geographical position and draws a sky map of any section of the sky with all 88 constellations. Stargazers can use it to help them find or identify objects in a clear night-time sky.
You can calculate twilight times, moon phases, and various astronomical information like coordinates, magnitude, distance, rise and set times and much more of the planets and all the other objects in the sky.

Version: Planetarium 2.3.0
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. This is the best palm astronomy software out there. I have tried every astronomy related software for palm I could find and they mostly just take up memory. I use Planetarium every-time I go out observing, thinking about observing, at the astronomy club meetings, in waiting rooms....
PS. they are up to 2.3.1 now
