Iphone Users; 3D Sun

Posted by BC on February 24th, 2010

Iphone App - NASAFor hard core Sun followers, and for Iphone users, here is something just for you. NASA developed an application of a “…live global view of the sun.”

Using real time images of Sun, you can fly around it to see the side away from Earth, zoom in and out to inspect features, and do many other things, right in your hand. You can have real time images of sunspots, coronal holes, and flares. If a flare occurs, your phone will jingle and let you know.  You can have alerts to let you know when other types of events occur, as well.

If you just have to have this app for your Iphone, check it out. Let me know how you like it.
