Cybersky is a program use for tracking stars and performing other astronomy related activities an a digital sky.

I had some real problems downloading from the authors site, and finally ended up getting the file from TUCOWS which was a bit of pain but not too bad.

When I got in to the programs main screen I was looking at a display of some of the major constellations which by its self is a cool screen as now I know what to look for in the night sky.

Also from this screen, you can click on any star and find out its exact magnitude and distance at least as best as we have estimates for). The program has literally dozens of tools to display information on everything from planets, to comets and asteroids and even 'deep sky objects'.

I'm not afraid to admit a lot of this is above my head, I just never got that deeply into space related science however, I'll also point out even I can see this program has a load of information to offer. That says a lot for the program, and I have a significant other who I am sure will get lost in it for awhile to come as she loves her science.
