Near Star Map Available

Ever wanted to know about the neighborhood? I’ve seen a lot of lists and well-done static images that show information about the stars nearest home, but ever since I started programming, I’ve wanted to make a local starmap that a viewer could manipulate in 3D. Working on my off-hours for the last several weeks, I’ve used Unity to make one, accurate as of late 2011. I’ll update it with current info as new findings enter the public domain.

Please enjoy. If there’s sufficient interest via email, I’ll add some features and a webpage information key in the near future. It’s available above and in the sidebar at right under Space Info Tools/Widgets

And yes… one could possibly use this widget as a map screen in some kind of game. If that interests you, by all means let us know.
