      pvis14.zip Tells when planet, moon or sun is visible.Free

      Planet's Visibility - Presents a deceptively simple 3-color graph that
      tells, at-a-glance, when a planet (or moon, sun) is visible from your
      location. The vertical axis marks the months of the selected year,
      with the horizontal axis marking the 24 hours of the day (in local
      time). The three colors create a contour map effect and identify when
      the selected object is visible, not visible, or "eclipsed" by the sun.

      A fixed cross hair identifies the current date and time. By moving the
      mouse over the graph area, the date and time, as well as the objects
      altitude, azimuth, and magnitude (or the phase of the moon if the moon
      is selected) are displayed. Over 400 cities representing virtually
      every country are predefined, and it's easy to add an own location. In
      addition the program shows the times of solar/lunar eclipses and the
      (relative) positions of the Galilean moons.

      Special requirements: None.

      Changes: Shows the (relative) positions of the Galilean moons, print
      functionality.

      pvis14.zip has replaced pvis13.zip.
