Models of 3D and 2D Solar system

FLASH model of the Solar system convenient for the development of ideas about the Solar system. IN 2D

On this model You can clearly see and understand what the Solar system. Flash animated model, we can consider the motion of the planets not only in the absolute coordinate system, but in relative.

Top left is the lever to change the speed of rotation of the planets (including negative). Beautifully highlights the important points on this model. You can also turn on the music if you need music background.

The lower left of the moon phase. Helps in clarity.

At top right You can enter a specific date, say a birthday, and to get the position of the planets at the moment. Just below the switch between the months and the constellations, walking on the edge of the circle.

Bottom right switch astronomical systems of perceiving the world. Copernicus and Tycho Brahe. Heliocentric world system of Copernicus displays the center of the world, the Sun around which other planets revolve. Geocentric system of Tycho Brahe (16th century Danish astronomer and astrologer) was less recognized, but more convenient for calculations from the point of view of astrology.

Great lever rotates in a circle. He can pull the mouse to set the desired time for consideration. In General, this model of the Solar system very easy to understand, hotai not giving a really accurate sizes and distances. However, this is done intentionally for clarity. If someone does not hold a monitor picture, press the keys “Ctrl” and “Minus” simultaneously. If you want to zoom in, “Ctrl” and “Plus” simultaneously.

FLASH model of the Solar system with the real distances between the planets. 2D

On this model the coordinate system is absolute, that is, without ancient beliefs. Distinctive features – clarity and realism of distances. Negative – this is an inadequate proportion of the planets. However, their grain of truth, this model also provides. Say, a special moment is the distance from the observer to the solar system. It varies from 20 to 1300 million kilometers. Changing this distance the more you understand distances in our solar system between our planets.

Also here is a very informative step-time – top right is a switch. Year, month or day step size. Changing his thinking PBOs relativity of our time. To show the model.

3D model of the Solar system.
