Haven't downloaded it yet Susan but did go to that weblink.
That link goes straight to a download page; my humble apologies for stepping on your link, but here is the MAIN
webpage.
http://www.stellarium.org/
The page you put up looks like it is geared for 'linux' and the Mac computer.
Great find though and I may just grab a version for Windows.....
My reason for grabbing it ? I am curious about something. Right now we are in the age of Pisces. When the sun rises in the East every day,
supposedly the constellation of Pisces is behind the sun or near it....... When the age of Aquarius starts, supposedly the constellation
of Aquarius will be behind the sun in the east at sunrise. Sooooooo, I wonder if I can see when that will be within this Stellarium
program you pointed out..... Thanks for pointing me in the right direction for the weblink !

There is a way to download other celestial bodies into Stellarium from the program.
It used to be that one had to go to the JPL site and grab the info needed by a
copy and paste method. Then one had to convert the data to a different format and manually cut and paste the info into the ssystem.ini file. Now there is a menu
to go to inside stellarium to download the needed info directly into Stellarium.
   
Comet Elenin is not a celestial object included automatically in the download but it
is available for download once the program is running....
