Planetary Kaleidoscope is a free space educational app that gives you a visual of what gravity waves would look like over time between any planets you choose in our solar system creating awesome planetary signature kaleidoscopic designs.
With the year 2018 suspected to be one of the biggest years in space exploration and technology I have created a fun and educational app to celebrate that lets you "see" the gravitational lines between the planets in our solar system. With this app you can choose to draw color coded lines from any planet to any other planet, resulting in a kaleidoscope image. You can speed up or slow down the planet's orbital speed around the sun from not moving all the way to 40,000x top speed, observe the days and years that go by relative to each planet, and track each planet's seasons. The starting positions of the planets in orbit around the sun are the actual positions the planets were in on 2/6/2018 and should remain correct upon opening and running the app for hundreds of years into the future!
