Mac users of Starry Night V5 will encounter the error message "Unable to connect to update site. An internet connection is required " when attempting to download new data files. The files for download include the Calendars (updated once a month) and Comets, Asteroids & Satellites (fresh files posted daily). Unfortunately, given changes in OSX 10.7 Lion, these data files will now have to added manually. Fortunately, adding the files is a simple procedure. First, you need to locate the Sky Data folder
RIght click the Starry Night program and select Show Package Contents/Contents/Resources/SkyData
1) Calendars (updated once a month)
Put this file inside: Sky Data/Calendar
2) Comets, Asteroids, Satellites (fresh files posted daily)
Put these files inside: Sky Data and replace the existing ones
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
