Virtual Solar System Wallpaper
by: KreApp Development Software • 6
This beautiful Live Wallpaper shows our Solar System as seen from above. It displays the *actual* positions of the Sun, all planets, selected asteroids and comets by using their orbital parameters.
Watch spectacular comets visit the inner Solar System, enjoy Coronal Mass Ejections erupt from the Sun regularly, use the time-lapse function to travel to the future of the Solar System, or just watch the planets revolve around the Sun.
Zoom in and out by sliding one finger vertically over the display. Travel back and forth in time by sliding with two fingers in horizontal direction (distance between the fingers determines the time step). Double-tap to set the current date.
This wallpaper is highly configurable and provides a lot of different options. The main features are:
- Display of the actual positions of the Sun, eight planets, the Moon, up to 30 asteroids, and selected comets (Halley, Hale-Bopp, Encke, and currenly bright comets).
- Comet tails change dynamically
- Comet list will be updated regularly
- Display of planetary orbits
- Selection of different backgrounds (future version will enable you to set your own background)
- Display of currently set date
- Directions to ecliptical constellations
- Set any planet as reference to the center of the screen
- Set different time-lapse speeds or the current date
- Let the Sun erupt regularly
- Set font sizes etc.
