Planet Finder is an astronomy compass that renders the solar system planets around you (Sun, Mercury, Venus, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto!). It's a convenient tool to get a quick orientation of your night sky!
It's extremely easy! Just launch the application and you'll instantly get an overview of where the planets are relative to your orientation. ”You're in the middle of the screen”, on earth, and the planets are plotted ”around” you relative to your orientation. If the planet is above the 'compass' ring and is highlighted it's visible for you! If the planet is below the compass ring toward the center of the earth it'll be shadowed and is below your horizon. The screen can be zoomed in and out. This is convenient when the planets are near each other, as is often the case for Mercury, Venus and Sun.
