The Final Frontier

With the recent anniversary of the Moon Landing, at UberDownloads we thought we would celebrate by bringing space and the moon to you. We have two great products for people interested in the stars:Stellarium, a virtual planetarium, and Virtual Moon Atlas, a virtual map of the moon. Both of these great products are designed to be informative and entertaining at the same time.

Outer space and the stars truly are the final frontier and we are happy to bring them down to Earth for you.

Stellarium

Stellarium is a planetarium simulator for your computer. Moons, planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies, Stellarium has everything and it shows it to you in a great, beautiful panoramic view.

You select where on the world you want to view the sky from and Stellarium will take you there. If you live in Boston, LA, Beijing, London or Podunkville, Ohio, you can see your sky because Stellarium doesn’t just connect you to the closest large city but lets you choose any vantage in the world.

Stellarium is incredibly informative with data on planets and stars just a click away. Mostly it’s just fun though. Set up your location and time and let the program run with planets and stars whirling over head, or see where the stars will be tomorrow night, or where they were on your birthday!

Use Stellarium’s constellation features to display the constellations as line drawings or as full images. And Stellarium doesn’t just have Western constellations. Choose from Chinese, Korean, Lakota or even Ancient Egyptian skies, among many more.

If you have any interest in the night sky then you will greatly enjoy Stellarium.

Virtual Moon Atlas

“Boom, right to the Moon!”

Well, Virtual Moon Atlas won’t take you to the moon, but it will do the next best thing by bringing the moon to you. Virtual Moon Atlas opens an interactive map of the moon right on your computer. The entire moon is right there before you, every crater and every sea.

Built very exactly by and for selenographers (moon watchers), Virtual Moon Atlas is extremely detailed and informative. A simple mouse over or click will make the program display information on interesting features of the Moon, even such tiny features as the locations of the Lunar Landers. Virtual Moon Atlas is designed to be used while gazing at the moon and to help find interesting features and land marks.

Anyone who is interested in the moon will be interested in Virtual Moon Atlas for its ability to show the most interesting points on the Lunar surface year round and help amateur moon gazers find interesting points.

Stellarium and Virtual Moon Atlas are each one of the best programs we offer on UberDownloads and we think that both can help you see the universe.

The stars and the moon right on your desktop. Can it get any better?
