     Enter your longitude and latitude and the program will display the positions of all the stars in the sky as viewed from your location. Place the cursor over a star to get more information. Click on the picture window and press the right and left arrow keys to move one degree in that direction. Hold Shift to move five degrees and Ctrl to move a quarter degree. Obviously, there's a lot more that could be added to this program (saving your location, for example) but it works as is and I've gotten a little tired of messing with it. :) Feel free to make additions to it. Also, comments and votes are welcome. Thanks!

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
