Stellarium is a free open source planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope.

How have I been on this earth for over 35 years and never heard of the Voynich manuscript?

It’s right up my alley, and yours too, I hope.
