Mac can serve not only as a tool for graphics, design, photo and video processing, etc. Quite a lot of various programs have been created for our macs. I offer to your attention a macintosh for astronomers.

I'll start from afar and tell you about the free OSXplanet program, which generates satellite images of our planet, shows various data (time in different parts of the planet, data on volcanoes, earthquakes, etc.). The program is rich in settings and is not demanding of resources. Very funny, but annoying.

Table planetarium Stellarium. Renders a real-time 3D image of the starry sky. There are more than 600,000 stars and other space objects in the database. The program has the most interesting functions — for example, you can see how the sky looked n#8217;th number of years ago over some city, or show the connecting lines of the constellation or see the trajectory of the planets and much more. The program has a simple interface that even a schoolboy can easily master. Probably the best planetarium for your desktop.

And finally, a couple more programs that you might want to pay attention to. AstroGrav is a program that will help you in studying the movement of astronomical objects and their interaction with each other. It is not demanding of resources at all, but it is shareware. And another planetarium — Equinox. Among other things, you can highlight the special features of the program — voice control, transparent control panels, continuous panoramic image of the starry sky. But like AstroGrav, Equinox is not free.

My choice fell on Stellarium. Do you use any similar program?
