WhereIsM13 is a free Java application designed to help us break out of our habitual way of perceiving the night sky.
It does this by displaying the common Messier objects in their three dimensional positions within or around the Milky Way.
Note: A more advanced version of this application is in the works. It will have:
- A more extensive object catalog
- The ability to zoom in and out of the galaxy view
- The ability to click objects plotted in the galaxy view to display their names and statics
- Many other enhancements
