Added "STEREO-A" and "STEREO-B". First time applied a direct transition from a geocentric orbit to a heliocentric.

Oops, I've realized that there is a small problem with those files, so they are missing some indices (like HD 189733). Here's an updated version, if anyone is interested:

Will the Mars Pathfinder go along side Sojourner?

Not yet. The model did not suit me.

NICE! Especially to Opportunity, because it deserves its place in the History of Martian exploration.

If I remember, there's also 2 rovers to be sent to Mars around 2021, so perhaps they can be included in future releases if you want

Yes, I know. I'll do it a little later. While in the first place new spacecrafts.

By the way, new stars or clusters of foreign galaxies are not planned? :wink:

I'm finalizing an add-on that populates the Carina Dwarf, right now.

Also, I have so many ideas for add-ons, but so little time for any of them. I'm considering making another catalogue of binary stars, this time from a single source like the Multiple Star Catalogue (MSC). However, it will take a lot of time, and I've also never attempted such a project before.

And speaking of binary star catalogues, the Motherlode's webpages are back up! So I'll update my add-ons there when I have the time.

In file solarsys.ssc, line 193: " Clouds of Earth" "Sol/Earth/" causes a runtime abnormality. It should change to "Clouds of Earth" "Sol/Earth" :wink:

In version 1.6.1 everything works correctly. In 1.7.0 bugs are very likely, but we still do not focus on it.
The absence of the name was made specifically so that the individual virtual clouds would not appear in the catalog.

The backward slash "/" after Sol/Earth causes error?
" Clouds of Earth" "Sol/Earth/" --> "Clouds of Earth" "Sol/Earth"

In Celestia catalogs, the "/" is a separator, not a terminator.
It separates the elements in an object's "path" from one another.

I agree with all you both said, but if you run Celestia in other languages (LANG=ru or LANG=fr or ... ...) rather than English (LANG=en), and select object by typing " Cloud of Earth", it will reproduce the error caused by "/" after Sol/Earth (in solarsys.ssc).

Added after 2 minutes 28 seconds:

Apology for the above misplacing.
