Hi, for all of you we´ve made new user-friendly interactive 3D model of solar system and night sky (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 :-)

Post subject:  New model on solarsystemscope

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

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 

Post subject:  New model: How do the Sun and Moon appear to move across the


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

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 :-)
