Jupiter Simulator


Jupiter Simulator (previously know as JoveMoons) is an astronomy app that shows the location of the four largest Jupiter moons, and the Great Red Spot.

All positions can be shown in real time, or in faster animation. You can set the clock to other times in the future or past.

You can navigate in three dimensions, and zoom in and out. The orbits of the moons can be made visible. Information on the nature of the satellites is given.

Recent changes:
-Improved user interface
-More useful information based on user's location: rise, set and transit time. Altitude and azimuth. Planet visibility.
-Go to the next great red spot transit event.

Its very nice. The only thing that irritates me however is the moons in reality are tidal locked however the app shows a rotation for each. This may be to demonstrate the surface of each but its just too inaccurate for my liking.

Tony Gordon Fantastic idea,great graphics, being able to move everything around then put back to their current position is a real plus.Now ,when viewing , the 4 moons can be identified easily.
