New 3D model of solar system and night sky

Hi, for all of you we´ve made new user-friendly interactive 3D model of solar system and night sky with real-time planet´s positions.

http://www.solarsystemscope.com/ (requires flash)

Application in a simple way helps students and laymen to understand the movements of the planets and to recognize constellations.
For astronomers it also brings other interesting views and various settings.

It's free and without needing to install, so definitely try it :-)

Mito - your GUI designer/s need to be congratulated. That's a seriously lovely piece of work. Well done

I'd love to be able to embed that in an external astronomy club website for visitors to use - with full credits to you showing, of course. If you ever consider that notion it might be very well received by far more people that might ever stumble on your website alone.

Secondly, could you include a few Australian cities in your observatory lists?

Excellent work - beautiful!

New model: How do the Sun and Moon appear to move across the sky?

Hi,

After the success of SolarSystemScope we have launched a new Watch & Play model

http://www.sunmoonscope.com/

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 :-)

Sounds great, but sadly those of using PowerPC macs will never be able to use it since Adobe FlashPlayers no longer support them.
