This 3D simulator shows you the
motion of Saturn and of its seven major moons (Mimas,
Enceladus, Tethys, Dione, Rhea, Titan and Iapetus), completing our previous app
Planets; you can observe the
rings of Saturn
in high resolution, as well as the
surface features of the moons.
Imagine you are travelling in a fast spaceship that can orbit the planet and its
moons, directly observing their strange surfaces. The original images
we have used in this utility came from
two important sources: Milky Way - ESO/S. Brunier, the
Moons - stevealbers.net; however, they
were tuned a little bit in order to make them more clear. This app is mainly designed for tablets
(landscape orientation is recommended), but it works fine on
the modern phones too (Android 5 or newer).
