The PRO Astro Clock is a Live Wallpaper clock and a real time simulation of our Solar System, including the Rocky Inner Planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars), the Gas Giants (Jupiter and Saturn) and the Ice Giants (Uranus and Neptune) all to scale for size and orbits. The moons of Earth, Mars (Phobos and Deimos) and Jupiter's Galilean moons () Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto) are included too without being to scale.
The orbit and planet size are not in the right relation or most of the planet would appear as small dots.
Beside being a clock with date display the app is very educational in showing the solar system with planets and moons in relation to the Earth moving through the year in real time. 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 and young students and adults with an interest in astronomy or people that just want to know where they are in space at any time.
