“Simply amazing.” - Macworld
“Solar Walk serves up a visually impressive 3D model of our solar system. Set against a haunting, atmospheric soundscape, the app shows planets and satellites in their correct positions, and offers mini movies, facts and other related tidbits.” - TNW
“This jaw-dropping app provides a wholly interactive 3D model of our solar system, one that’s had me hooked for days. It’s the kind of thing you can imagine a science teacher using in the classroom of the future — except that we don’t have to wait.” - CNet
“Zoom from Mercury to Pluto (which makes the cut in this app), passing each planet’s moons along the way. Because Solar Walk knows what time it is, the planets are in proper orientation to the Sun: Earth is dark where it is currently night and gradually lightens to daytime on the other side.” - NY Times
"It's great for showing my students the relative positions of the planets in the solar system, the satellites orbiting the Earth and our place in the galaxy. Awesome with a smartboard as well." - by jbrown61
Solar Walk enables you to:
► Observe 3D model of our solar system with all its objects in real time and in a proper orientation. Turn into an astronomer and explore planets, moons, satellites, asteroids, dwarf planets, comets, stars and other celestial bodies. Enjoy gorgeous graphics and visuals while navigating through the solar system!
► Make virtual flights from one space object to another.
► Travel in time and see what the universe and our solar system looked like at a certain period.
► Find an exciting view of the Milky Way Galaxy.
► Watch a collection of educational solar system movies to learn about space-related topics including Earth's moon phases, Earth's cycles, tidal phenomena, and zodiacal constellations.*
► Enjoy 3D planetarium with the help of special glasses and activating the anaglyph mode.
► Share interesting screenshots of the app with your friends.
► Choose the view mode comfortable for you (orrery/true-to-scale).
*Available through In-App Purchases.
Solar Walk is a great educational tool appropriate for both adults and children. The amount of information users can learn about the planets, moons, satellites and other celestial bodies is impressive. Information is age appropriate, detailed and animated video clips make learning our solar system even more engaging!
Our entire solar system can be explored through this excellent astronomy app!
This update brings some minor bug fixes and performance improvements.
Thank you for using Solar Walk!
Any feedback is highly appreciated.

LIKE OMG SO COOL MAKE SURE TO AD MORE STARS Size Conpairsion Glitch Please Fix It Other Then That I Love It
Why such a low notation?
I discovered a problem that you should correct in ‘Solar Walk’ App: major one.
What I see naked eyes in the sky: Jupiter’s & Saturn’s path crosses the galactic plane near its center SA* , observation that brings me & us to major development in astronomical comprehension of the celestial movement (cmo: observers).
What I see through the SWapp: the galaxy, as a fond, a decor, back landscape is not there: whether it has been slewed on the wrong side of the solar system, or too fade. When I enlarge (or retract, as going higher focus or focal), still the error is apparent.
Indeed, this summer passage of the ecliptic in front of galaxy center indicates solar orbital plane of the planets is perpendicular to galactic plane. I discovered this, but I’m not the first: For you to visualize: Youtube: Le Système Solaire en 2D 3D 4D.
I would like a respond from any info master before I let go this: you would sell
’’New improved designed Solar Walk with Galactic Orientation’’.
By the way, next move should be pointing the constellations or some important neighbouring stars in this slewing outward trick.
Looking forward to hear or read from someone in the app design room.
