Stargazy Pi

.. a Planetarium on Raspberry Pi

I never did succeed in coaxing my early Raspberry Pi into compiling and running Stellarium, but the Raspberry Pi 2 works, albeit sluggishly:

sudo apt-get install stellarium

If using an older Pi, instead, there's a usable planetarium for use on those clear starry summer nights:

sudo apt-get install kstars

if you want a desktop icon, then:

 

 cp /usr/share/applications/kde4/kstars.desktop /home/pi/Desktop

 

See http://edu.kde.org/kstars/ for information about kstars.
