About this app

Solar System Scope is a fun way of Exploring, Discovering and Playing with the Solar System and Outer Space.

Welcome to the Space Playground

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 19 languages: English, Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech, French, German, Greek, Indonesian, Italian, Korean, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Turkish and Vietnamese. 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.

I love this app. It's a lot of fun to use, and it's nice to see an objective view of the planets relative locations from an external perspective, as this lets me rationalize what I see in the night sky. One issue though, the star view seems to be questionable. At least when viewing from my location, and with time set to always 12pm, it shows the sun dipping below the horizon in the winters, which it definitely never does at 40°N. Seeing this glaring error makes me question the rest of the data.

Props to the first and only app to freeze up my phone - and it was WORTH it. Lol Granted, I was toying with the solar system timeline often, and for many minutes long, which I'm sure could become a resource hog quickly, given all of the on-the-fly calculations and animations taking place (I had virtually everything set visible). The app is gorgeous, educational, and fantastic. And free? Thank you!

I have a few things to say about this app: First of all, I think it's wonderful! I am obsessed with all things space. The ads are annoying, but at least they feature some cool products like telescopes, microscopes, etc. At least it's not those annoying TikTok advertisements and game ads. That's a plus for me! I think it would be cool if they would include actual pictures of the surfaces of the planets we've been able to take photographs of-(continue to next passage)
