The description of Stars and Planets App
Stars and Planets is a fun way of exploring space and map our universe.
Warp to distant stars and explore various exoplanets like lava worlds, water worlds (Kepler-22), earthlike planets or massive jovians with "Stars and Planets" planetarium app and astronomy guide.
Take a thrilling ride through space and visit strange new alien star systems such as multiple planetary systems, circumbinary planets and asteroid belts, black holes, pulsars and the moons of our solar system.
Are you tired of all of these celestial night sky apps showing stars, only from the Earth's perspective or from a telescope view? Do you want to travel through space in a spaceship at warp speed? Then this is the map for you!
Now you can even fly a spaceship through the atmosphere of planets!
Ever wondered how far from Earth are the stars you see in the night sky? Now you can visualize those distances in 3D with a star map divided into 10 parsec sectors (cubes) or 32.62 light years, for an easier observation.
★ Almost 4.5 million stars, over 4500 exoplanets, 200 circumstellar disks, 39 black holes, 11 magnetars, around 2500 pulsars and 152 moons in this simulated view of our Universe
★ Catalogs are updated daily from multiple sources, without needing to update the app. Whenever NASA & ESA James Webb Space Telescope - JWST - will find new celestial bodies, they will be included in the app.
★ 3D representations of all star systems and their orbits in space
★ black holes in binary systems, including the famous Cygnus X-1 and the Great Annihilator (the only binary system with a black hole and a pulsar)
★ pulsar exoplanets - the first type of exoplanet ever discovered beyond our solar system, orbiting the extremely dense core of a massive star that exploded as a supernova
★ magnetars, a special and rare type of neutron star
★ Search for stars, planets, moons, black holes and neutron stars by a wide range of parameters: name, type, system type, constellation, catalog, star type (color)
This interactive 3D map is excellent for teachers to use for instruction, and it is a great astronomy resource for students to explore the Milky Way galaxy and space as they learn more about the universe we live in.
An internet connection is necessary to access the online stellar database as well as the wiki information. A subset of the database can be queried offline including planetary and orbital data.
