A major solar flare erupts on the sun. Before long, your phone chirps in your pocket to let you know! Pulling out your phone, you see a 3D view of the sun — a digital reconstruction of satellite images freshly downloaded from NASA's "STEREO….. Read more

What's New in Version 3.5

Refinements and improvements to the 3D view of the sun.

Users can now instantly view the 3D sun from an Earth-side perspective and a farside perspective

Labels on the 3D sun now automatically follow features on the sun's surface over days as the sun's rotation changes the apparent position of those features.

Crashes a lot & can no longer change color

Since the most recent update, you can no longer change the color of the rotating 3d sun, the sun stays green now which is kind of disconcerting since we know it as yellow/red. Also seems to crash constantly when clicking on current conditions. Otherwise very neat application for a person who is into keeping up with space weather.

4/5 stars
Very interesting app

Its shocking how good this is being free! It's a great combination of visualization, news and images. This new version adds Earthside and Farside buttons. I had been hoping that some indication of the Earth direction would be added to the 3D view. Sadly, it seems that only a single wavelength is available now whereas in the previous versions, you could select the different wavelengths and see significant differences. All in all, still the best app of its kind.

One thing I had to get over is the expectation of stereo imagery. The app does have '3D' and 'STEREO' in its documentation, but the stereo here is a an acronym for a pair of space telescopes that feed the surface images. Those images are mapped onto a rotating sphere in the app's "3D Sun" view, but there is nothing stereoscopic about that. Presumably, that would be possible, and awesome (hint?) !

5/5 stars
It's STILL astounding!

Yes, for the moment the different wavelength views are gone...but this still one amazing, informative app.
