Celestia overview

Celestia is a free real-time space simulation that lets you experience our universe in three dimensions. Unlike most planetarium software, Celestia doesn't confine you to the surface of the Earth. You can travel throughout the solar system, to any of over 100,000 stars, or even beyond the galaxy. All travel in Celestia is seamless; the exponential zoom feature lets you explore space across a huge range of scales, from galaxy clusters down to spacecraft only a few meters across. A 'point-and-goto' interface makes it simple to navigate through the universe to the object you want to visit.

The idea is interesting. Implementation was nice as well. What the program lacks is a good, solid update. On July 9th, 2009 we saw the last news from Celestia team. I hope the project is not dead...

Selecting "Move Closer" makes any image window go blank. ?? (MacBook Pro, OS 10.6) Not quite as much fun as Google Earth.

For any people who have ever found that jumping around to different places in Google Earth was an addictive adventure, this is even better...
