Hello,

If you want a view point not from Earth, try using Celestia.

http://www.shatters.net/celestia/

I have used it to show players what their night sky looked like. I even
named two constellations as seen from their planet. I thought about offering
bonus XP points to players who created other constellations, but then I
decided I wanted to keep control of the culture's background...
