Strong Points: Designed for a person with a strong desire to know more about astronomy.  It will give you more information than you will ever learn from school.   It gave everything from the size of a star, location, system it is located in.  I enjoyed being able to see the stars from any point in the world and changing the color.  I thought this software would be designed for grade school students, but it is more for college students.  This program is like spending time in a planetarium.
Weak Points: boring!!!I was hoping for more of an educational game and this was more of a chart you could have looked up in the library.  It would have been fun if you were able to be in a spaceship and able to travel for a starwars effect.  This is not a program for young children.
