This is a planetarium software for GNU/Linux which shows a map of the night sky at any given time and place.

The data includes the Hipparcos star catalog, the IAU Minor Planet Center files for currently observable comets and minor planets and the NGC2000 catalog of nebulae. Planetary positions are derived from an abridged VSOP87 model and the Moon's position is derived from an abridged ELP/82b model.

All GUI parts have been written with GLib 2.12, GTK 2.8, Pango 1.14, and Cairo 1.4 (Debian Lenny libraries) so these are requirements for compiling and running the program.

I run it with a 3 GHz CPU and 512 Mb RAM. RAM should be ok but moving the field of view requires a lot of CPU cycles, because it redraws the field at a high rate. I don't know how it behaves on smaller CPUs.


I've uploaded this a .tar.bz2 package(3858kbytes) here.

I made it into a .tar.bz2 as it's 1Mbyte smaller than in .pet mode. Unfortunately that means that you need to extract it to a temporary location, then copy across the internal /coords-0.8/root & /coords-0.8/usr directories to their right location. Then it should run by entering coords in a console.

(N.B. the author's note about the specs of the machine he runs it on, so don't expect it to run well on 500Mhz-128M RAM).
