Celestial bodies have once served as means of orientation to help us easily travel without aid from modern technology. Nowadays, the magic of the night sky can rarely be viewed due to various factors. However, with the help of applications such as X-Celestia you can enjoy and study the universe on the go, or from the comfort of your desktop.
View from multiple observation points
Running the application brings up a rather simplistic interface. Except for the upper toolbar which is home to all available features. Nearly all the workspace is dedicated to let you get a better and clearer view of the universe.
Furthermore, you can split the preview section either vertically or horizontally in a nearly unlimited number of parts. Each newly created section is controlled separately so you can set observation points from different parts of the universe.
Take a tour around the solar system
Probably one of the first steps you might want to take when running the application is a tour around the galaxy. This gives the application full control over the camera movement and displays info on nearly each visited location.
Moreover, the application gives you the possibility to record your own trajectories either with images or a video in case you want to share specific views with your friends or the general public. Additionally, you are able to save favorite locations with the help of a bookmarks manager and easily visit them with a simple mouse click.
To end with
All in all, X-Celestia is a handy and practical application you can use in case you ever decide to get to know our planet's surroundings a little better. It provides real time movement of celestial bodies and multiple view types in order to give you full control over what it has to offer.
