Description: Play inside your very own Orrery, a working heliocentric 3d model of our solar system. Learn the basic facts about each of the planets, and witness them and their moons up close in accurate orbital relation to each other.

Review: Celestrion is pretty much what you might expect, a virtual orrery. This digital model of the solar system illustrates the relative positions and motions of the planets and moons according to the heliocentric model (basically a working heliocentric 3d model of our solar system). It is designed to help teach basic facts and understanding about each planet and their rotation of moons. You get to see them all moving up close and in true accurate orbital relation to each other unlike many other solar system apps like Titans Of Space 2.0.

While it is basic at best you are not paying much for it so you kind of forgive the lack of any instructions, guidance or indeed content, but for less than the price of a chocolate bar this is worth a look for anyone who loves looking at the stars.
