Welcome to SkyORB 3D
SkyORB is more than a simple star map, it's a collection of 7 tools including a 3D star map, 3D planetarium, ephemeris, search engine, weather, sun clock and more.
SkyORB includes a comprehensive search function allowing you to view the night sky from any point on earth.
Featuring a search engine, a large catalog of stars, planets, current satellite (including current space shuttle missions) and let you choose see the actual sky from any point on Earth.
SkyORB allows you to fine tune your observation location (and orientation with digital compass if available) with automatic detection from GPS (or entering the longitude, latitude and altitude). Information like sunset and sunrise are computed as well as moonrise and moonset and full / new moon dates.
The sky map is drawn with realtime precession. You can rotate freely and in realtime in 360 degrees at 60 frames per second.
