In this video, Astronomy
magazine Senior Editor Richard Talcott explains how to use the advanced features of Astronomy.com's interactive star chart StarDome Plus
. It has all the features of the regular StarDome, but adds lots more.

You can track the moons of Jupiter and Saturn and the shadow paths of solar eclipses on an map of Earth.
