The Space Engine

Explore the Solor System and the entire Galaxy with The Space Engine. This free simulation software uses actual astrological data to generate a to scale representation of the known Universe.  Some planets you can even zoom into the terrain level and skim the surface. Use the autopilot feature to zip across the sky at near light speeds, or change the rate of time to see heavenly bodies go from fully lit to eclipsed

There are countless locations to explore already, and with promised updates in the future, this Sim is well worth the download.
