Draco is back :pi:

But we played with a similar program in Astronomy. You could follow the rotation/revolution and paths of planets. It's interesting at how they don't actually just go in an elliptical or even circular path, but some do loops and have crazy orbits.

Oh wow. Favorites.

It's fun to look at Mars and see the satillites, then look at Earth.

Is that meant to be sarcastic? :vlol:

This sounds very similar to Celestia (http://www.shatters.net/celestia/index.html), which is basically the same but you can go outside the solar system, even beyond the galaxy! :p
