Here's the next best thing to lying on your back and watching the stars overhead. The Power Age Sky Simulator is a virtual planetarium with a remarkable feature set, although it's not completely glitch free. The interface is very intuitive and easy to understand. Star coordinates are displayed as you move your mouse cursor across the "sky." There are four views to choose from, and you can customize colors as well. During testing we ran into a peculiar issue when we moved from one viewpoint to another, as it seemed that function also affected our desktop and Start menu. Another bug causes the program to crash when you zoom in to the program's maximum value. Despite these stumbling blocks (and a limited 10-day trial period,) this is still a star-studded application for those who either have stars in their eyes, or simply want to be stargazers.

Developer's Description

Power Age Sky Simulator is full-featured planetarium software, which gives you the possibility to explore the sky from any point on the Earth at any given time. It operates with a vast number of objects: the biggest planets, comets, asteroids, 19 million stars, and 14 000 deep sky objects (from a NGC/IC edition). Power Age Sky Simulator has an almost completely customizable appearance. It also has a telescope control feature that you can operate with your telescope through the program.

Note: Less stars, no telescope control.
