What is Stars and Planets?
Warp to distant stars and explore various exoplanets like lava worlds, water worlds, earthlike planets or massive jovians with Stars and Planets planetarium app and astronomy guide. Space is awesome and the universe is at your fingertips! Take a thrilling ride through space and visit strange new alien star systems such as multiple star systems (from binary to septenary), multiple planetary systems, circumbinary planets and disks, black holes, pulsars, magnetars and the moons of our solar system.
Features -Almost 4.5 million stars, over 4400 exoplanets, 200 circumstellar disks, 38 black holes, 11 magnetars, around 2500 pulsars and 152 moons in the database
Exoplanets are updated daily from multiple sources, without needing to update the app. Some exoplanets' appearance will change in time, they may be classified as possible earthlike planets in the beginning, but recent studies will show that they are more like a Venus type world.
Stars extracted from SIMBAD from multiple catalogs like the European Space Agency's Hipparcos mission, the Gliese catalogue, parts of the ASCC - All Sky Compiled Catalogue and the most recent GAIA catalogue
3D representations of all star systems and their orbits (green stars = unknown spectrum)
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)
Pulsars and pulsar planets - the first type of planet ever discovered beyond our solar system, orbiting the extremely dense core of a massive star that exploded as a supernova. Fewer than 1% of pulsars have been found to host planets.
Magnetars, a special and rare type of neutron star
Search for stars, planets, disks, black holes, neutron stars and magnetars by a wide range of parameters: name, type, system type, constellation, catalog, star type (color)
Detailed information for every stellar object
Explore space and get a little closer to our wonderful universe with this awesome astronomy app! This interactive 3D map is excellent for teachers to use for instruction, and it is a great resource for students to explore the Milky Way galaxy and space as they learn more about the universe we live in.
