Play with the Solar System

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!
For an unusual tour of our solar system, check out this website:

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).
