Very beautiful. As an orrery lover and astronomy lover, I could watch it for hours. Unfortunately, it does eat up lots of battery power, so use it carefully. But it is totally worth it. I did have some trouble getting it downloaded and transferred to my Moto 360. It may take you a few tries, but stick with it. It is amazing.

Tried to download this app several times over the course of several days and each time it said there was an error.

Incredible Can can't wait for this to develop into something that can be used on your home screen or lock screen in full motion.
