Perseus can reproduce many interesting astronomical events, in the past or in the future. Here you can download some "situation" files for Perseus to assist you in reproducing the most exciting astronomical events.

To use the "situation" files, click on the image or the file name. Save the file in the "SAVED" folder of Perseus (usually C:\Program Files\Perseus\SAVED). Execute Perseus and load the situation with the "Load situation" command from the "File" menu. These situations can be animated by clicking on Avvio animazione on the control bar or by pressing "A" on the keyboard. You can also see the simulation full screen by pressing F11.
