The Sun formed 4.5 billion years ago, as the solar system coalesced from a cloud of gas and dust. The Sun looks like a burning ball of fire, but it actually has an internal structure. The visible surface we can see is called the photosphere.
*Sun app gives more information about Sun, its history and rotations.
*The quiz section provided tests your knowledge about Sun.
Navigate through planets and their moons in 3D mode. Explore their surface with detail.
The position and orbits of the planets are real according to date and time.
The size and orbits of planets are real (but in very very small scale).
You have the following options:
1) Move from planet to planet and moons
2) Rotate the camera to view planets from every angle
3) Zoom in and out
4) Toggle orbits, ambient light, labels, grayscale mode
5) Go faster, slower (with the hidden bar in top of the screen)
6) Info about planets.
7) Real Shadows
Many thanks to Torrence Griffin (http://www.youtube.com/user/teahman) for the beautiful music.
The app works on phones and tablets. But it may take time to load on phones.

Meteorites and artificial satellites excepted, nothing moves faster in the eyepiece than Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. For this reason, these brightest moons of Jupiter are most popular and easy targets for binoculars and telescopes alike.
Galilean plots current and time-shifted positions of the moons, both as on-north orbit view and edge-on, while the latter can be tilted to Jupiter's rotation axis (geocentric) or parallactic angle (topocentric), if Jupiter is above horizon. Transiting moons and their shadows are plotted on an enlarged view of the planet. For curiosity, triple shadow events can be simulated from a list of occurrences between the years 1901 and 2092.
Galilean also computes detailed physical and positional ephemerides for Jupiter and the moons, as well as countdown for the transit of the GRS. Furthermore, a chart is provided showing Jupiter's elongation from the Sun.
* Orbit and edge-on views
* Tilted edge-on views
* Views through various optics
* Time shift ±10 min, ±1 hour, ±1 day
* Selectable date and time
* Rise, set and transit times
* Jupiter ephemerides
* Jupiter moons ephemerides
* Rectangular coordinates

The Big Bang was a simultaneous explosion of space occurring everywhere in the universe at once. It marks the origin of the universe's inflation epoch - a brief exponential expansion of the universe at faster than the speed of light.
The Big Bang model relies upon two critical ideas: General Relativity and the Cosmological Principle. Matter in the universe is distributed uniformly which allows the use General Relativity to compute the property of space-time using General Relativity.
This app displays some key images and associated calculations during the early seconds and minutes of the universe.
This app serves as a brief summary guide of the key events following the Big Bang.

Sun Tzu’s The Art of War quotes:
“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”
“Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.”
“Supreme excellence consists of breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.”
“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win”
Occasionally, an antenna reflects sunlight directly down at Earth, creating a predictable and quickly moving illuminated spot on the surface below of about 10 km diameter. To an observer this looks like a bright flash, or flare in the sky, with a duration of a few seconds.
This app displays in real-time where is each Iridium satellite, predicts when these flares will occur from the observer's position and allows from the 3D locator, locate the exact point in the night sky.

Pictures are mainly coming from public repositories of the European Southern Observatory, the PhotoJournal of Jet Propulsion Laboratory or the Hubble Heritage archives. No affiliation.
Here’s what you get.
Astronomy news - get interesting in-depth astronomy news articles delivered daily to your phone or tablet. We gather news, images and videos from genuinely authoritative and interesting sources such as Universe Today, SPACE.COM, the Hubble space telescope, and NASA.
Astronomy pictures – yes, you get captivating photos via the famous NASA image of the day. But why stop there? Through the app you can also see space photography from the Hubble telescope. Unlike the NASA photos which cover a variety of subjects, the Hubble telescope images focus mostly on the night sky, retrieving information about distant galaxies, planets and stars.
Astronomy articles - Read stories not just focusing on the US, but also international partners like Russia, China and the UK. Such stories often contain interesting facts, quotes, photography and links to videos. They cover subjects such as: observatories, astronauts, test pilots, telescopes and NASA missions.
Disclaimer: we do not own or claim to own any of the content distributed through our app. These are our personal favorite sources that we think combine informative content with ease of understanding. Easier to see them in one spot than to surf all around the web.
NASA or The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is the agency of the United States government that is responsible for the nation's civilian space program and for aeronautics and aerospace research. Most U.S. space exploration efforts have been led by NASA, including the Apollo moon-landing missions, the Skylab space station, and later the Space Shuttle. At present NASA is supporting the International Space Station and is overseeing the development of the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle and Commercial Crew vehicles.
The most notable NASA activities are its space flight programs, both manned and unmanned. The latter can be either independent, carrying scientific equipment, or supportive, testing equipment for manned flights. In the beginning, NASA’s missions focused on the space race with the Soviet Union, which won the first round, but later USA took the initiative and won the final race to the Moon.
Hubble Space Telescope
The Hubble Space Telescope is a space telescope that was carried into orbit by a Space Shuttle in 1990 and remains in operation. In low Earth orbit, Hubble's four main instruments observe in the near ultraviolet, visible, and near infrared. The telescope is named after the astronomer Edwin Hubble.
Hubble's orbit outside the distortion of Earth's atmosphere allows it to take extremely high-resolution images with almost no background light. Hubble's Deep Field has recorded some of the most detailed visible-light images ever, allowing a deep view into space and time. Many Hubble observations have led to breakthroughs in astrophysics.
Hubble is the only telescope designed to be serviced in space by astronauts.
