LOVE IT!!! GREAT APP WORTH THE MONEY! Its like the science of the Romantic Age combined with the science of the Modern Age. Great for any lover of astronomy. This is the Copernican Orrery (Sun centered correct view)...there is also the Ptolemaic Orrery (Earth centered old view) that would be cool to see sometime like this one. ☆☆☆☆☆ 5 Stars and ☆°•°•° • ° • ° • ° a shooting star :) Samsung Galaxy S5
