Product description

this cd is the guide to guide you threw the night sky

Amazon.com

If looking up at the sky on a clear night has always held more than a bit of curious fascination for you, Starry Night Backyard, Special Edition is the perfect tool with which to explore your intergalactic interests. The application is packed full of information to delight the backyard stargazer, but is powerful enough for the serious student.

View the stars from your exact location on Earth (or any other location on the planet), or travel throughout the solar system to see views not possible until now. If that's still too close to home, Starry Night Backyard can produce views from anywhere within 20,000 light-years of the solar system. Auto Identify helps you instantly identify the constellation you're viewing, while the Go There feature lets you travel to the planet, moon, or star of your choice.

Basic information about each star, planet, or galaxy is available within the program. This special edition also includes the Starry Night Companion, a 240-page guide to understanding the night sky using Starry Night.

Curious about the way the universe looked in the past or how it will look in the future? This software allows you to travel through 200,000 years of time in a matter of minutes. You can also create QuickTime movies of your adventures and send them to friends.

With almost too many features to mention, Starry Night Backyard, Special Edition is an amazing tool for anyone with a fascination for space. It's as close as you will probably ever get to owning your own planetarium. --Joshua Craig
