Wow, that's a nifty little app.

Kind of like my OpenGL Computer Graphics assignment... but this one actually works. And it's much cooler.

Actually, I think the only thing this app and my assigment have in common is that you can hit 'w' to toggle wire framing... :)

you're going nuts with the 3D stuff cb911. Its a cool little app, but I've got Starry Night Pro, which sort of does the same thing, but has many more options (its Astronomy software).

Very nice! :D

Doesn't go beyond nice and nifty:(

I tried it yesterday. Yes it is nice and nifty. The huge downside is the interface. It is nowhere near intuitive. The controls are quirky. Navigation can be tricky. Of course what do I want it's freeware.

Probably Starry Night Pro ($179) is better in that degree.
