This 3D simulator shows you the
motion of Jupiter and of its four Galilean moons, completing our previous app
Planets; you can observe the
Jupiter's Great Red Spot and the smaller Jovian storms
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
three important sources: Milky Way - ESO/S. Brunier, Jupiter - www.solarsystemscope.com, the Moons:
stevealbers.net and Bjorn Jonsson; 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 4 or newer).
