I used Starry Night years ago and liked it, but after a while it appeared that they abandoned the consumer market to concentrate on schools. Based on Pettifogger's changelog, it hasn't been updated since 2011. Also, there are so many different versions of Starry Night that it's hard to know which version to get. I just received an offer from MacHeist that includes Starry Night in a bundle with some other apps for only $19.95, that sounds like a pretty good deal.

Very nice app - I purchased this on eBay at the end of 2006 and it has given me sterling service from the start. The only gripe I have is that Simulation Curriculum give almost no notification whatsoever of any updates [This page alone bears testimony to it...SP6 is already at v6.4.3 but the "latest" version on MU is 6.2.3] I have managed to compile a list of the various v6 Pro and Pro Plus updates (as well as their respective release dates) that are available as at June 19th 2011: STARRY NIGHT PRO 6 UPDATES

Apparently, the British submarine engineer and historian Gavin Menzies, has used Starry Night to research what month and year that the Chinese Muslim navigator Zeng He discovered America. You can read more in his book: 1421- The Year China Discovered America

Keeps getting better and better. Nice panoramas, great 3D models, nice simulations. I started using Starry Night around version 4 and by 6.2.1, it has been vastly improved. The developers are quick to sort out problems and there are more updates in between versions than in the past.

Version: 6.2
Updater does not work. It cannot find the application. On one computer the application was in a folder in the Applications folder. Nothing you do to tell the updater where the application is works. I moved Starry Night to the applications folder and it worked. But on a MacBook Pro running 10.4.11 there is nothing that works to get the updater to work. It constantly gives the error message "Application Not Found" even though you select it in the window. It is a "stupid" updater in that it can't even see its own application.

The More Information link goes to the version 5 updater, and not version 6. Years ago I used version 3 and only recently updated to version 6 thanks to version 5 being on sale at the Discovery store, and an upgrade offer to version 6 from Starry Night. Otherwise it would have been too expensive for me. Although the price can be high, I think it's really the best software of its class out there. Very thorough and intuitive.

This is not a bad program, if it worked!! If you go to 'spaceshit' it will start to rotate and then bombs on you. It bombs if you try to zoom in on a location, it bombs, bombs, bombs. I would stick with 4.5; until they get the bugs worked out in version 5. It's not worth the headaches. This is with OS 10.3.7. 4.5 is stable. Wait until they come out with a new upgrade, maybe it will work, but for now don't waste your money on Pro 5. I can't say for the other ones they offer.
