Solar System Scope – astronomy gets a glorious makeover


The stunningly beautiful Solar System Scope is an easy to use space travel experience, which lets you soar through our solar system at the touch of a button. The application is populated with gloriously high resolution images, and there are all sorts of cool settings and buttons to press to give different views of the planets and moons. You can even watch the flow of time as it acts on our solar neighbourhood. The next best thing to being there. [Via]

 SSS means Astronomy for Everybody. Whether you are a student, astronomy fan or an accidental browser, you are most welcome to play with our user-friendly application. It’s full of space-art graphics, has easy-to-use interface with various settings and offers interesting information.

  • Hi,
    After the SolarSystemScope we have launched a new Watch & Play model

    focused on the Sun and the Moon as they appear from the given location of the Earth surface:
    – current position of the Sun, its trajectory, time and azimuth of sunrise and sunset
    – moon phases, current position and trajectory of the Moon
    – seasons, solstices and equinoxes in chart

    But the most interesting part is to drag the model in time and watch changes during a day or year.
    (polar day and night, analemma and situations on the equator are our favourite)

    Enjoy it :-)
