Description

Pocket Planets is the most comprehensive 3D Solar System Simulator in the Google Play Store.
With accurate scale representation of the Sun, Planets, Moons, Asteroids, Dwarfs and detailed information to the celestial objects.
Use it as educational software for your kids, or regardless if you are a beginner or advanced astronomer, this App brings you closer to the planets than any telescope.
Working great on smartphones and tablets.

Discover…
★ the Sun, the bright shining star in the center of our Solar System
Mercury, the fastest planet orbiting around our Sun
Venus, its greenhouse effect produces a surface temperature that would melt lead
Earth, the blue oasis and only place filled with life
Mars, inspiration for many SciFi films and books
Jupiter, the giant, guardian and protector in our neighborhood
Saturn, with rings of unique beauty and elegance
Uranus, which rolls over its orbit like a bowling ball
Neptune, the outermost recognized planet
Pluto, one of a new category of dwarf planets

But these are not all objects of this simulator, because so far you do not know Orcus, Varuna, Ceres, Pallas, Haumea and all the other asteroids and dwarf planets. Not to mention Sedna whose orbit is still speculative to science.

Nearly 200 objects are included, but not as static images, rather as living objects in a living universe. Enjoy the Solar System in realtime, in the future or past.

Bring the cosmos to life with an innovative timeslider. Let time take its course, how fast depends on the scale factor of the timeslider. A wipe with your finger and the simulator comes to life.

For a more exiting viewing experience various camera modes are available. Attach the camera to a planet or place it at a fixed location in space and let the celestial bodies pass by, in portrait or landscape mode, whatever you prefer.

And that\’s still not all. A built in encyclopedia gives you useful information about each object of the simulation, extracted from Wikipedia.

Don\’t miss this unique viewing experience, there is no easier way to explore the wonderful world beyond our planet.
And if you ever feel \”Lost in Space\”, don\’t worry, because it\’s just a simulation.

★ Super smooth UI
