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.

We've added top 100 brightest Satellites into Earth orbit. You can find them by using the SEARCH feature of the app. You can also set SPACECRAFTS to VISIBLE in the app OPTIONS and watch all of them by going to Earth orbit.

We've also added an automatic update system for all displayed spacecrafts so each one of them always has it's most accurate position. Our big thanks goes to CelesTrak - NORAD for sharing their TLE datasets with us.

You can now find information about any STAR from all of the 100 000 stars included in our app: use the search feature, choose a star you are looking for - use our stars list, or type in the name of the star into the search window. Then click on the explore button that appears.
You can also find any star via its CATALOGUE ID - current catalogues include Hipparcos Catalogue, Henry Draper Catalogue and Bright Star Catalogue: eg. writing down HD48915 in the full text search input will find Sirius.
