  1. Today we released version 0.21.0 of Stellarium. The major changes of this version: - We have finally completed our work on accurate planet axes, including Lunar libration - Visualisation of Earth shadow for Lunar eclipses - Better texture for the Lunar surface - Added the latest algorithms for planet magnitudes - Enhanced Calendars plugin - Replaced "arabic" by more accurate "al-Sufi" skyculture - Planets are now scalable and Solar glare switchable for didactic applications We have also published a scientific paper about the application of Stellarium in cultural astrono
  2. This is very good question! We compute coordinates of radiants for valid range of activity from RA/Dec (J2000.0) and drift values to get the correct location of radiants (please compare to official maps: https://www.imo.net/files/meteor-shower/cal2021.pdf). Outside valid range of activity we just place radiant in location of first day of activity, but this is of course not correct by astronomical reason and correct by didactic reason (we mark location of radiant, but people will no see meteors).
  3. Please check the values of coordinates within range of activity days
