Nova for Windows offers configurable graphs of spatial polarity,
declination, degradation, sky temperature, and distance.

Subject: [Moon-Net] Geometric (Spatial) polarization calculator?
Is there a program which will show the geometric (spatial) polarization
rotation between two stations and allow you to easily go forward and
backward in time to see how it changes? I know WSJT does the calculation at
the current time. EMECalc SkyMap allows you to scroll backwards and forwards
in time, but only shows moon data (alt/ez etc.) for the home station. I saw
a reference somewhere that said EMECalc displays spatial polarization, but
if it does I haven't found it.
The Astronomical Data window of WSJT does display the info but I don't see
any easy way to scroll backwards and forwards in time like you can in the
What would be really nice would be a map of the world you could click on to
set your location and which would then calculate a contour (color coded?)
map showing spatial polarization across the hemisphere that could see the
moon - and shift backwards and forwards in time - but that's almost
certainly wishing for too much!
