This simulated view of our solar system runs on real data. The positions of the planets, moons, and spacecraft are shown where they are right now. This digital orrery is a light, mobile-friendly version of NASA’s Eyes software. Download the full, free program for an even more immersive experience.
This snapshot of our solar system focuses on active NASA planetary science missions and select ESA missions. Showcasing the entire operating NASA fleet is too much of a data wallop at the moment (but we are working on it). International missions such as Japan’s Akatsuki (orbiting Venus) and ESA’s BepiColombo (en route to Mercury) are not yet available.
