The Sky screensaver, first released in 1994 by John Walker, co-author of the AutoCAD software, shows you a map of the sky above any location on Earth that you specify by latitude and longitude. This includes stars, the Moon in its correct phase and position, the position of the Sun, and other planets in our sky. The screensaver draws from various data sources, including the Yale Bright Star Catalogue of more than 9000 stars, and a database of more than 500 deep-sky objects. Access the "Detailed Configuration" from the settings panel to customize the display of constellations, deep sky objects and stars.

John Walker's screensaver is brilliant. I have been using it since XP days and still use it on my Win10 computers. Win10 has a small registry issue with it but despite that it runs beautifully! Highly recommended!!!!
