Build your science fiction world with night sky maps!

This is piece of software for mapping stars within a galaxy. It's good for building a science fantasy world.

It uses dark-matter simulation data from the Illustris project, to place stars within a simulated galaxy. You can add systems, planets to those systems, and then build star maps from them.

Enjoy!
