Solar Walk - 3D Solar System model
This 3D Solar System model enables you to navigate through space and time, observe all the planets in close-up, learn their trajectories, inner structure, history of their exploration, points of interest and more. Use 3D mode to get a more realistic experience! And zoom out to view and spin the entire Galaxy!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY:
I really enjoy this app. It is as informative as it is beautiful. If you enjoy learning about our home, I strongly recommend this app.
Simply amazing! With the new update you can see the satellites and zoom out to the milky-way. Bravo! The score is also amazing…
by Mr. JLO
I have always considered this one of my top five favorite iPad apps. It's the one I always show people. This new update makes this thing ten times more amazing…
The new update really shows where the developer is trying to take this app. I love the new planet size movie and being able to see what's revolving around our Earth.

WHAT EXPERTS SAY:
Solar Walk for Mac is a full-featured 3D solar system model that allows you to move between stars and planets with your mouse, zoom into check on the planets’ details and read accurate descriptions about them. You can zoom out to view the entire galaxy (well, at least through what’s known of this galaxy), see a planet’s inner structure and learn about its history of exploration. - Federico Viticci, MacStories
Solar Walk allows users to explore the Solar System, as well as the entire Milky Way Galaxy. Notable features include real-time trajectories of the most interesting artificial Earth's satellites, your current position marker, the biggest cities on the globe, and the points of interests on Mars, Venus, and the Moon. -Filip Truta, SoftPedia
• GALAXY view - absolutely magical zoom out to view the whole galaxy option.
• SATELLITES - real-time trajectories of the most interesting artificial Earth's satellites
• LOCATIONS - the biggest cities of the Earth, as well as sights of the Moon, Mars and Venus.
• MOVIES - explain basic physical phenomena
• 3D SOLAR SYSTEM model
• INFO about all planets: general info, its name, its mass, radius, distance to the sun, internal structure with the picture and science missions.
• TIME MACHINE - slide the time scale and the sky will start moving accordingly. Tap year, month and time and change them depending on what you want to see, the display will adapt accordingly to show you how planets were aligned at that time.
Mind that to use the 3D mode you will need a pair of cyan-red 3D glasses. And, yes, we know that Pluto is no longer considered a planet, but by popular vote it has been added to the Solar System Model.
- Added Curiosity model on Mars
- Added info about Curiosity in “Science Missions” of Mars
- New models and textures for Phobos and Deimos
- Added "weight" to planets.
