Starmap reads in the Gliese near star catalog and Yale bright star catalog, computes star positions, and shows an overhead 3-D view of nearby stars, letting you navigate through the 80 light years the Gliese data spans using the arrow keys. More features are planned. Astronomy-interested developers are welcome.
Release Notes: Now uses galactic coordinates, shows star info when you point at it, can calculate distance between stars, also loads Bright Star Catalog, extracting non-catalog names (like Sirius) out of it.
Release Notes: Flicker-free operation, shows viewer position, and other various usability fixes.
