April is set to have a Super Pink Moon on the night of Tuesday, April 7, but for those who want to explore Earth and other exoplanets in space, there’s an app for that. It’s called NASA Eyes, and this free software lets you venture through the galaxy and explore beyond our solar system like never before. You’ll be able to view asteroids, comets, planets and their moons and the spacecrafts exploring them. Read more for a video and additional information.
Whether it be visiting Pluto on the New Horizons spacecraft or orbiting Mars with the MAVEN spacecraft, it can be done in the app. Or, if you want a quick journey through our solar system, simply launch the “simple” mode to explore destinations, missions, as well as the people behind them. The app uses immersive, real-time visualization, and in a scientifically accurate environment. More information here.
