Solar Walk is a 3D environment for navigating through our solar system

Solar Walk takes you up into space on an adventure through and around the planets in our solar system. Users can explore a vast array of moons, dwarf planets and comets — each with information about their dimensions and orbit. There are also a handful of videos that cover the basics, such as Earth cycles, moon phases and eclipses.

Solar Walk understands the time, date and year, and can therefore display relevant information, including what areas of Earth are in darkness or what phase our moon is in.
