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

newbielink:http://www.solarsystemscope.com/ [nonactive]      (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 :-)

Very nice link :)

Normally the Mods are quite strict with people linking to their own sites, but I hope this one to pass the 'needles eye' :)

Thnx.
==

The best use of Flash I've seen in fact.
Must have taken you an awful lot of work to put together.

Very cool :)
==

This one jumps in on my favorite list ::))
I'm gonna go real fast through space with this one :)
==

Test 'geocentric view', then go the 'cogs and wheels' shown at the left  -then look up- 'stars and constellations' and make the constellations lines ever so weakly visible.

When you've done that, press your 'space bar' and voila..

It's breathtakingly 3D

Hi,

We are happy to tell you that we have a new little model on our website

newbielink:http://www.solarsystemscope.com/ [nonactive]

called Season Scope - shows actual position of the Sun and the Moon for your location with lots of information:
sunrise, sunset, lenght of day, moon phase and more...
Your location will remain saved.

We hope you will find it interesting

Love your solar system simulator. It in my favorites, right next to Photopic Sky Survey.

There is a bit of a bug in your Seasonscope. When I change my zoom level to 200%, the Seasonscope image gets smeared at an angle across the screen. I'm using IE9 and Win7.

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

newbielink:http://www.sunmoonscope.com/ [nonactive]

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 :-)

After success of solarsystemscope.com in the last year,
we´ve launched a new version of solar system model on our new portal
newbielink:http://www.sunaeon.com [nonactive]

Portal will gradually bring new space related 3D models,
interesting content and useful features. So check it out :)

Love it !..it's almost art !...beautiful...great job !

I know it's probably unavoidable but the adverts on both sides detract, as I said though, I guess it's a necessity .

All you need add now (in the next version) is movement of the weather on the planets !


Actually, just noticed that you do have weather movement on Earth and it would be great to get the asteroids in the ' belt ' moving !

Now I see you can speed up time and that's very nifty !
