The FREE Astro Clock is a Live Wallpaper clock and a real-time simulation of the inner Solar System, including the planets Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars to scale for either size or orbit. The moons of Earth and Mars (Phobos and Deimos) are included, without being to scale. Beside being a clock with date display the app is very educational in showing the inner planets and moons in relation to the Earth moving through the year. At each full hour an animation of the planet movements since the beginning of the year is shown. (it will take a few days after New Year to become obvious). Great for children, students and adults with an interest in Astronomy. Constantly see where you are in the Solar System! If you like this app you will love the PRO Astro Clock showing all planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune). The PRO version provides also extensive settings like AM/PM time-format, (widget like) screen placement, text size, animation speed, background color and many more options.
