New Celestia Website and new Forum design

Introducing a new modern design of the website, made with the latest web technologies (HTML5 + CSS3). We are also launching a new design of the forum in dark colors. Thanks are due to Alexandr Kuznetsov (Alexell), who is responsible for the new website and forum design! More info on forum topic.

Restored Celestia Forums

Today we are launching restored old Celestia Forums! Unfortunately, the old forum files (attachments and avatars) are lost, therefore many messages are now without pictures. User accounts registered in the 2002-2014 years should work fine.
