Stellarium is a free open source cross-platform planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope.
Supported Platform Details
The Stellarium team strives to provide support for the platforms most frequently used by Stellarium users. We have designed our internal testing procedure to divide platforms into three test categories (Tier 1 and Tier 2) in order to prioritize internal testing and development resources so that the most frequently used platforms are subjected to our most rigorous testing processes.
Stellarium is supported on a variety of 32-bit and 64-bit platforms, and can usually be built on each platform with GCC or Clang compiler. Although Stellarium may be built on a range of platform-compiler combinations, only a subset of these are actively supported by Stellarium team.
Tier 1 Platforms
All Tier 1 platforms having our high priority level for development and internal testing. Errors or bugs discovered in these platforms are prioritized for correction by the development team. Significant errors discovered in Tier 1 platforms can impact release dates.
