Celestia is an open source 3D Space Simulator for Windows, Linux, and Macintosh that will allow you to explore our universe and travel throughout the solar system, to any of over 100,000 stars. You can even explore outside of our galaxy. Did I mention that it is in Real-Time?

Unlike most planetarium software, Celestia doesn’t confine you to the surface of the Earth. You can travel throughout the solar system, to any of over 100,000 stars, or even beyond the galaxy.

All movement in Celestia is seamless; the exponential zoom feature lets you explore space across a huge range of scales, from galaxy clusters down to spacecraft only a few meters across. A ‘point-and-goto’ interface makes it simple to navigate through the universe to the object you want to visit.

Celestia is expandable. Celestia comes with a large catalog of stars, planets, moons, asteroids, comets, and spacecraft. If that’s not enough, you can download dozens of easy to install add-ons with more objects.

This application certainly is impressive and very entertaining if your into exploration and the universe. Celestia also has a large range of Add-Ons that you can get from Celestia Motherlode.
