Solar Walk 2 - New Solar System App

Sep 26, 2015

Alexandria, Virginia, - Vito Technology has introduced Solar Walk 2, the next generation of the company’s best-selling 3D solar system guide. Redesigned from the inside out, the new Solar Walk 2 is a powerful educational tool at the edge of graphic technology that shows wonders of the solar system seen as never before. Based on real physics and latest photographic data, Solar Walk 2 comes to life with stunning visual effects of planetary atmospheres, solar flares, auroras and asteroid belts to give the space depth and feel that hadn’t yet been possible on a mobile device.

In Solar Walk 2 the life of the solar system is presented as a series of events: celestial (solar eclipses, conjunctions, etc.) and man-made missions. Users can see experience the progress of space exploration and see how the planets moved at the time and how they are going to move in the future.

With the new Calendar users can travel with Voyager 1, see how gravity assists helped Cassini get to the outer edges of the solar system, and explore Hubble as if you were right next to it. 60+ spectacular 3D models of important space missions and satellites are available in high detail and travel according to their actual coordinates.

New Apple Watch app for Star Walk 2 will also inform the user about the brightest events like an ISS flyby or an Iridium flare, meteor showers, rise, set and culmination hours for the Sun, Venus, Jupiter, and the Moon. One can set a notification for any event straight from the wearable device.

The new Solar Walk 2 has visualizations of important celestial events. Users can view any solar eclipse from space as a shadow crossing the Earth and see exactly what regions it covers at what times for each and every eclipse of the covered range.

Solar Walk 2 comes with an interactive Apple Watch app that presents a fun challenge for kids and adults.
