    Default What's in the Perseus Arm?



    I am interested in what Stars in the Milky Way are there in the direction 180 long. 0 +/- a fraction of a deg. I guess this is about 8000LY away.

    Is there a good calculator that I can use to plug in such coords and it give a map? Thanks.

    Look on the web for a program called Celestia, it is capable of doing that.
    You could also try Stellarium.

    Some people don't understand why I love astronomy so much! I cannot understand why they don't!
