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.

The best, hands down. This beautiful, HD app makes me panic at how small I am. All apps depicting space should take note from the realism of this. Great job, folks.

Nice. Found myself checking it today for accuracy on orbital speeds. Curious as to how difficult it would be to work in real time data from public links to add another layer of beauty to it? Suspiciousobservers on YouTube has a great laymen sun watching group. Links to similar groups would add a cool layer of public service to it.

Educational and Soothing Wonderfully rendered. I would gladly pay for upgrades like the ability to explore planets based on true imagery and/or to have a manual and auto fly through mode on the orrery. Any chance you guys can do the Milky Way?
