Home Planet (John Walker) - Earth-space -sky simulator. Orbits, planets, stars,asteroids,comets and more.
Comet Hale-Bopp QuickTime Movies( created with Carina Software's Voyager II by Brian Monson, Univ. of Tulsa) - show the sun, earth, and the comet from 8/11/95 to at least 12/97. They clearly show that the comet misses the earth. No- nonsense very fast loading animations which are worth having.
J-Pass 2,0 (NASA) - this is a programme which runs within your browser and plots a sky map showing the path of any satellite(man-made) directly overhead. After setting up the programme (automatic) all you have to do is put in values for latitude and longitude, the time of day and then choose a satellite. It will also show the positions of the International Space Station, MIR and the (US) shuttle when applicable. Very useful for a realistic overview of all the satellites in orbit, as well as to know what you are actually seeing when you look up at night.
Solar System Live- interactive orrery of the solar system. Date, viewpoint, objects and many other items can be entered.
