Description:

Aciqra is an open source desktop planetarium free for use by anyone for any purpose. It tracks the objects of the sky from anywhere on Earth to an accuracy of 1/10 of a degree for the next 100 years. It is designed specifically for those who observe or want to view the skies. Its simplicity makes it ideal for those who don't want features and frill interfering with their work.

Changes to previous version:

Removed erroneous topocentric code. Increased maximum zoom for detail on planets.

This looks like very nice software, but what does it have to do with machine learning?

Oh right...I keep forgetting the version in development...

The one in development reads star catalogs off CDs, controls a telescope and "remembers" where the telescope was last pointed. You can remove this version if you want although I'm not sure if the next version has to do with machine learning either (I'm assuming it means to get your computer to learn to do something)
