Online Planetarium

Going through pages and pages in Stumble Upon (most of them are worth it) I found this wonder:

Neave Planetarium

The Neave Planetarium is an online planetarium with which we can know more about the stars, planets and constellations that are found in the sky at any given moment and which we can see with the naked eye.

It’s as simple as choosing our location and the time in the application, and going out to see the stars.

When you want to know something about a given star or planet, locate it on the online planetarium and click it so that information can be displayed about it like its name, its constellation (if it is a star), its brilliance (magnitude) and its distance from Earth.

An excellent tool for those who love to look up and admire what’s in the sky.

About Zodiac Signs

Maybe you love to ask people you just met: “What’s your zodiac sign?” And maybe your perception towards that person changes depending on which sign he tells you he is and what you think you know about that particular zodiac sign.

I am sorry to disappoint you. Zodiac signs don’t have anything to do with your life and probably you think your sign is one when it’s actually another. Why?

Well, because your zodiac sign depends on the position of the Sun in relation with the constellations and how they appeared 2,200 years ago!! And that position is NOT the same as TODAY.

Astronomy and Astrology are two very different disciplines. Astrology may have its bases on science but the idea of  being influenced and determined by the alignment of the stars in the universe is a completely different thing…

If you still doubt and believe that the characterisitics of your zodiac sign strongly relate to you or you can’t get out of your house without reading your horoscope first, I recommend this video from Carl Sagan, mmmaaasssttteeerrr, let’s see if he can change your mind.

If on the other hand the zodiac signs don’t influence you in any way, I also suggest you to see it.

On the table below you can look up for your real zodiac sign.
