Zordan ,

great visualization

great visualization

however, the planet size do not seem to be to scale to their distances
I would recommend adding a realistic view,
to show the real distances and planet sizes

it is humbling to see the actual size of the sun and the planets and the vast distances between them

Developer Response ,

hi Zordan - thanks for your review, Happy you are enjoying the app. If you go to Settings / Info tab and scroll down, actual planet sizes are shown for reference. As for the distances yes, as in our splash screen, we mention that planets are extremely distant from each other, as in most / all solar system models and for display purposes we show them closer than they actually are.
Your review gives me the idea that we could include in a future release some visual information about this within the dynamic screen, so thanks for that.

INCREDIBLE view of our solar system!

I’ve always been fascinated with the way our solar system moves through the galaxy and have waited for an app like this for a long time. It has beautiful design and lots of fun features to discover. I especially like the way I can see my place on earth in relation to the earth’s rotation. So cool!

Another app to indoctrinate the youth

UPDATED: The movement of the stars is not correlated to the spin of the earth. It is showing the stars moving in relation to the speed of the sun and the earth chasing it. This goes against all mainstream claims that the stars are too far away to see parallax. The North Star would move if this model was true.

Excellent job on the graphics but we don’t live on a cartoon ball flying through a space vacuum. Why do the stars move in this app because in reality they never change century after century. The stars and wandering stars circle above the stationary earth in reality.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your comment. The stars move because you as the observer are rotating. Turn off “auto-rotation” in Settings, and the stars won’t move. And we do live on a "ball" flying through space; if you wish to see it in real time, just turn Fast Forward off.
