    Hi! I'm trying to use Stellarium to look at past skies in Bordeaux France. I am located in Kentucky, USA. Stellarium is using my system date/time, which is BEHIND France's time by 6 hours. This is causing problems...right now, it seems that the sky displayed is 6 hours AHEAD of the time entered....for example, setting time for yesterday in Bordeaux for 12:00 (noon) shows the beginning of a sunset, 15:00 (3PM) shows a dark sky, and 23:00 (11PM) shows the beginning of a sunrise.
    I have tried to configure the time/date settings under the PlugIns tab to UTC+2 (to match France time), instead of system default (KY, USA time). I think this has helped, but I'm honestly pretty turned around now.
    Can anyone help me understand and suggest what clock settings are best?
