Group:

I subscribe to the Demonstrations Project RSS feed (http://
demonstrations.wolfram.com/feeds/rss.xml) and came across the
following, recently published demonstration:

"Celestial Map of Constellations, Stars, and Planets, by Eugene
Stenly.
http://demonstrations.wolfram.com/CelestialMapOfConstellationsStarsAndPlanets/

(1) It takes a while to load the necessary data, so be patient when it
executes.
(2) Your location should automatically load as the default.
(3) I'd suspect one could learn quite a few tricks from the code; the
interface is full of features.

Happy 4th!
