FREE DOWNLOADS

Hayden Planetarium

This free download called Partiview is truly mindblowing - it is a 3D rendering of the known universe and you can fly about in it - i'm lost for words it is just so mucking findblowing

Los Bonobos - Satellite

Click on this link and while you're browsing the rest of the site you can hear Brighton based Los Bonobos playing the latest of their witty and catchy tunes 'Satellite' based on a column in the Brighton Sky. Hear the wistful and catchy melody, ponder the great lyrics, check out the live flute playing and get down to some weird drumming - this is a live bootleg version, but we hope to get a better quality recording here soon

Sky View Cafe

a really useful program a kind of orrery that you can view from different perspectives as well as a table maker - this is shareware and they kinda hope you'll give 'em some money after a month or so of using it

Skyglobe

free shareware planetarium software showing you the position of the stars/planets/moon for pretty much any time - past, present and future - its utterly comprehensive, really well presented, easy to learn and use from the first moment of loading - its what i use (what better recommendation)

Skymaps

every month they give you a free skymap download

Virtual Moon Atlas

just like the moon, but on your computer, imagine that, you'll never have to look at the actual moon ever again!!! - from the safety and comfort of your computer monitor you can zoom in, right up to the golf balls

 

IF YOU KNOW SOME COSMIC FREE DOWNLOADS

 

LINKS

Analemma

If you want to know what an Analemma is (put simply; it's a pretty infinity sign drawn out by the Sun) or perhaps you want a description, with mini videos, of the Equation of Time. This site offers all this and much more. They've even got a nice free download of a world time-zone map.

The Antiquarian Society

looking after your cosmic heritage, this band of geomancers are always doing events around Sussex so why not join 'em for a neolithic extravaganza

 

Atlas of the Universe

this site is absolutely incredible - not only does it have a zoom out view from the Sun right up to the visible universe, but details of every bit in between! Can't recommend this site strongly enough, it's great for absolute beginners/children and even has stuff to intrigue an astrophysics know-it-all

Birthstars

this is so cool - you tap in your date of birth and then it trawls through and finds a star where the light that left as you were being born is just about to arrive at planet earth - you can then go and see the light arriving as they show exactly where to find this star - a coupla months later and they've got another star for you - genius!

Galaxy Zoo

Take part in cutting edge deep space research looking for anomilies and helping catalogue galaxies - you get to see parts of space unseen by human eye. The human brain is apparently geared to this type of pattern recognition so the training only takes 15 minutes and then you can easily spot an anticlockwise spiral galaxy from a merging elitical galaxy - check it out!

 

Heavens Above

site that tells you when and where you can spot satellites - including live ISS tracker and the times of iridium flares - you have to register (it's free) but that's cos they can then calculate where the satellites are in relation to you

Sidereal Time Clock

the time in Sideria!!!???

South Downs Planetarium

Yes, there is a planetarium nearby. It's down in Chichister and one day we're going to get a minibus or a bunch of people with cars together and sort out a group visit. If that sounds good then get in touch and kick it off

Yuzoz

The beauty magic and randomness of space coming out of your puter!

As we're not a real proper astronomy group, maybe you don't wanna hang around with a bunch of jokers and want to get down to the real nitty gritty of being in a respectable astronomy organisation. If so, here are a few local ones -

Brighton's own -

Brighton and Hove Astronomical Society

Foredown Tower Astronomy Group

you know they've also got a camera obscura at Foredown Tower, and they do really nice nature walks during the summer

-lso:

Eastbourne Astronomical Society

Worthing Astronomical Society
