This website allows users to view the movement of the planets over ANY period of time.
Users can control:
- the speed of time passing -- both forward and backward
- the angle of viewing the solar system
- the distance from planets
- the measurements in Astronomical Units, Kilometers or Miles between any two objects
- the playing of existing tours and the creation of their own tours
- and much more!
Take the introductory tour to learn some of the shortcuts (such as press the + or - keys to zoom in or out; use your left mouse click to move the solar system around; hold the shift key down while you move the solar system and rotate the entire solar system on an axis).
