Solar System Scope
iOS Universal Education
Solar System Scope is a fun way of Exploring, Discovering and Playing with the Solar System and Outer Space.
Solar System Scope (or just Solar) contains many views and celestial simulations, but most of all - it brings you closer to the furthest reaches of our world and lets you experience lots of fantastic space sceneries.
It aspires to be the most illustrative, easy to understand and simple to use space model.
- 3D Encyclopedia
In Solar’s unique encyclopedia you will find the most interesting facts about every planet, dwarf planet, every major moon and more – and everything is accompanied by realistic 3D visualizations.
Solar’s encyclopedia is available in 10 languages: English, Spanish, German, Russian, Italian, Korean and Slovak. More languages are coming soon!
- Nightsky Observatory
Enjoy Stars and constellation of the night sky as viewed from any given location on Earth. You can point your device at the sky to see all objects in their proper place, but you can also simulate Night sky in the past or in the future.
Now with advanced options that let you simulate ecliptic, equatorial and azimuthal line, or grid (among other things).
- Scientific Instrument
Solar System Scope calculations are based on up-to-date orbital parameters published by NASA and let you simulate celestial positions at any given time.
- For Everyone
Solar System Scope is well suited for all audiences and ages: It is enjoyed by space enthusiasts, teachers, scientists, but Solar is successfully used even by children of 4+ years of age!
- Unique Maps
We are proud to present a very unique set of planetary and moon maps, that let you experience a true-color space as never before.
These accurate maps are based on NASA elevation and imagery data. Colors and shades of the textures are tuned according to true-color photos made by Messenger, Viking, Cassini and New Horizon spacecrafts, and the Hubble Space Telescope.
Basic resolution of these maps is for free – but if you would like the best experience, you can check out the highest quality, which is available with In-App purchase.
- Join our vision
Our vision is to build the ultimate space model and bring you the deepest space experience.
And you can help - try Solar System Scope and if you like it, spread the word!
And don’t forget to join the community and vote for new features on our homepage.
We have added a handy menu which allows you to navigate the whole app! Check the first button on left panel in the main view.
Now you can quickly find any celestial object just by writing down a few letters of its name - check it out by clicking on the search icon on the left. Works both in the solar system and the night sky view.
Thanks to the great composers Travis Fitzsimmons and Imphenzia, we can now enjoy a lot of great space themed songs. And if the first track sounds familiar - it's because it was the very first song that Travis composed especially for Solar System Scope many years ago!
Improved mobile tracking
Solar now supports both gyroscope and accelerometer - the result is very fluent mobile orientation tracking!
Auto-saving last geo-position
Observation location on Earth is automatically saved so you wont need to choose it next time you run the app.
Simplified Chinese translation is now available in the languages options.
