Do you love looking at heavenly bodies? No, not that sort - I'm talking planets and objects in the sky. Planetarium 3D is a new UWP application that lets you explore every major body in our solar system, with realistic solar and natural lighting. Swipe and zoom to your heart's content, on phone, tablet and laptop!
Love astronomy? Looking for some educational tool to teach children astronomy? This interactive 3D planetarium features all 8 planets of our Solar System and Moon in very high details.
All 8 planets of our Solar System and Moon
Highly detailed planets
Full 3D environment
Easy to use
Zoom-in and zoom-out
Demo mode (PC only)
Wallpaper generator (PC only)
Highly graphical, you'll be wanting some screenshots:
Pick the body you want (where's Pluto??!) and you're 'there'. Zoom in and out, swipe the body round and then adjust the sun's position (i.e. time of day) and speed of animation.
A pop-out tab shows vital stats, which are interesting, but it's the graphical detail that's best here. Simply gorgeous.
Best of all, this
UWP application is free in the Store for the next 12 hours following this post. After that, it's £2.50, so be quick!
