    The annual movement of the stars is contained in the star database but it is not displayed in the information panel when the star is selected. However it is used to calculate the star position relative to the current epoch. This movement will be noted in the entry for the star coords referred to j2000 and coords of the current date.

    This movement is only very small and will not be noticed on the display unless the new date is far removed from the present and the zoom in on the selected area is large. However it will be shown.
