Stellarium is a free open source planetarium

Stellarium is a comprehensive utility that helps users explore planets and constellations in a 3D environment. The objects can be viewed with the use of a telescope, which can be configured in terms of name, focal length and diameter. Stellarium allows users to select the projection mode (fish-eye, cylinder, Mercator), view landscapes from different world locations and add new ones from ZIP archives, and learn about different sky cultures.
