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.

Wish you could zoom into earth

I have used the website and now this app for years and I’ve learned a lot from it.

My biggest frustration is I have always wanted to zoom in on the part of earth facing the sun to see its position. You can sort of see it from behind the sun but always you’re left with wanting to zoom in to get a closer look. There are some zooming features but it always seems like a frustrating experience and it blocks you from getting it exactly where you want it.

Other than that, it’s been a really useful website/app over the years.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for the feedback, and we will try to improve the zooming.

Solar System Scope

This is the best app I have ever experienced in my entire life! My intelligence about space increased by at least 45%. I love this app so much, that I am going to keep it forever. Solar System Scope has taught me so many things about space in just one day! I love how realistic it is. Literally the stars, planets, and other things look so real! You guys did a good job, and I appreciate it. One thing I wish the app could do is: Visit Messieurs. I wish it could be able to go to the Messieurs so you can see them up close, and clearly. It would be so beautiful and cool to be able to see the Messieurs up close (Visit). If you could try updating it so you could be able to see other things like Messieurs, Comets, and Satellites, that would be great. Another last thing I wish the app could do is: Exploring other Galaxies! That would be so great, I would never delete the app in my life! If this app could visit other Galaxies, it would be so Awesome, everyone would have it. But other than those two things, the app is incredibly amazing!!! Great job you guys; you have changed my view about space, and the Galaxy.

Thank You

Since update crashes on startup

So, i purchased the desktop version for Windows, i purchased the iPad Pro and iPhone iOS version, i purchased the 3d models of the solar system upgrade pack, and....nothing?
Your software doesn't work.
On iOS, it won't even open. As i said, it crashes on startup.
(and i even went to the trouble of completely erasing my brand new iPad Pro 12.9 and reinstalling all its programs and resetting all its settings as a new device because i want to use your software.)
I firts contacted your company about this months ago.
I'm sure you folks are good people making a fun product, and i would imagine you take your work seriously, but if you take money from someone then don't supply the product that was paid for, that's a scam.
It has been MONTHS ihave patiently waited for a resolution to this issue.
I don't have anything i paid for from your company, (excepting the desktop Windows version, which works just fine.)
And the one reply i got from you is just to say "thanx for the email"?
It's been so long now that the software i bought from your company crashes on startup that i'm now on a newer version of the operating system, that being 11.4.
I would expecteithera refund of my purchase price or some kind of resolution to the issues that prevent me from using the product i purchased from you.
I await your detailed reply with answers to my inquiry.
