The truth is, calculating the exact place in the sky of 8,000 stars, plus the planets and constellations over a given location, at a given time, takes a lot of computation. Generating a beautiful image of that special sky takes even more computing power.
Rest easy, we do all this for you. Simply tell us from where and when you want to see your sky. We’ll handle the rest.
