New 3D model of solar system and night sky

Our Forums Have Closed

Hi, Everyone,

We have decided to close the Almanac forums.

The good news: Now you have the ability to comment on the www.Almanac.com Web site pages!

The Web site has grown tremendously, with 12 million readers every month. You'll find folks who are weather watchers, gardening enthusiasts, stargazers, and more. Find advice, get answers to questions, and share your experiences.

Find the Almanac here, too!

Finally, a big THANK YOU to all those who have participated in and looked after the forums over the years!

Sincerely,
The Old Farmer's Almanac

Hi, for all of you we´ve made new user-friendly interactive 3D model of solar system and night sky with real-time planet´s positions.

http://www.solarsystemscope.com/ (requires flash)

Application in a simple way helps students and laymen to understand the movements of the planets and to recognize constellations.

For astronomers it also brings other interesting views and various settings.

It's free and without needing to install, so definitely try it :-)
