Solar System Modeling

The Solar Model is realtime modeling of solar system. It allows user to navigate in space, to control time counting (speed-up time flow) and estimate real movement of space bodies like planets, dwarf planets and moons; estimate its nowadays positions in space. You may select two possible views: Solar System view or Milky Way galaxy view. It also allows user to bind camera to space objects (for example, you can look from Moon on Earth in real time flow). Solar Model renders beautiful 3D space environment.


It has some very useful features. Some of them are: Galaxy feature that able to render Milky Way galaxy and Ruler feature that draws orbits of a planets and their projections on the Sun. As Solar Model uses own related-sizes system, which only shows what planet on which place from the Sun, how planets moves and rotates; user cannot estimate real proportions of the bodies, because real proportions will simply make all planets difficult to find in the dark space, the Sun would occupy too much place while comparing it with any other planet.
