  • (2022-04-09, v:4.70) Tom Berg: "aliens laser" feature
    Hi, thank you for the cool extension. In the menu features, there is "aliens laser" which zooms to a big green streak. Is there any related astronomy articles to correlate these features? how were they sourced? my five year old is asking and there's literally nothing on google helping to identify this feature by that name. Appreciated in advance if you can help at all, Tom
