Solar System Event Screen Saver

Script does a slide show of various past, present and future events in the solar system such as notable oppositions, conjunctions, planet groupings, eclipses, transits, occultations, etc. 226 Events in all!!!! I am constantly adding more so check back often.

Currently version 187 of this script comes bundled with Stellarium 0.12.4, Version 226 adds 39 more events. Download it and overwrite the current script in the script folder.

Version 177 of this script came bundled with Stellarium 0.12.2 but it doesn't work right. Version 226 will work. Download it and overwrite the current script in the script folder.

Version 226 uses a command not found in previous Stellarium versions, it will only work with Version 0.12.2 and greater

In Stellarium version 0.12.0 & 0.12.1 changed the way scripts calculate dates and Jupiter's rotation, so the one that comes bundled with those don't work right and are buggy. Version 177 will correct those bugs & update to the changes and work right with Stellarium 0.12.0 & 0.12.1. So if you are using 0.12.0 or 0.12.1 download it below.

So when you download this script, replace the current one that comes with Stellarium.

If you are using version 0.11.4 or earlier and need this script download version 171 or earlier below or if you want to use version 226 you can remove the command in the script file that only works with 0.12.2. See FAQ in version 226.

Version 226 was also updated to improve the way the text for the events are shown for different screen resolutions.
