Moons of Saturn 3D
3D tool that simulates the motion of the Saturn's seven
free simulator allows you to see the
Saturn's rings and its atmospheric features
in high resolution.
Moreover, the surface of its seven major moons can
also be seen in great detail. Zoom in and
out, basic information about each moon you are
exploring, real speed ratios for the orbital rotations
of the seven moons - these are some of the most important features of this
free application. The seven largest moons of Saturn (Mimas,
Enceladus, Tethys, Dione, Rhea, Titan and Iapetus)
comprise more than 99.96% of the mass in orbit around
The innermost large moons (4) of Saturn orbit within its
tenuous E Ring, along with three smaller moons of the
Alkyonides group, while the other major moons (3) all
orbit beyond the E Ring.
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.
acts like a toggle button, it changes the application's main menu on and
off. A right mouse click shows a popup menu with the
other functions of this simulator. For instance, the
values of mass, volume and surface gravity can be
displayed if you select 'Show info'. 'Auto-rotate'
starts and stops the orbital and axial rotations of
these celestial bodies; when the animation 'freezes',
you may perform a thorough exploration or you can
take a nice screenshot.
