Science Saturday: Virtual Planetarium

There is nothing so disorienting as not being able to see your childhood's night sky—or any stars at all. And the light pollution in Seoul is going to make stargazing difficult when I start teaching there next month.

Fortunately, Neave's virtual planetarium will fix just that. Not only can you look around at any place in the world (and at any time!), but you can also click on the stars to find their name, their magnitude, and how far away they are! My childhood fascination with stars and constellations need not fall by the wayside. :)
