Description

Pluto Safari is your interactive guide to the first mission to Pluto, the last unexplored planet. It's a free app from the developers of SkySafari 4, the next-generation award-winning astronomy app designed for iOS 8. A MacWorld Best of Show and a Sky & Telescope Hot Product!

Follow the New Horizons spacecraft on its historic mission to explore the mysterious icy worlds at the edge of our solar system. New Horizons will fly by Pluto and Charon on July 14, 2015. It will then venture out even further and attempt to visit one or more objects in the Kuiper Belt region beyond Neptune.

Here is what you can do with Pluto Safari:

Countdown Timers: Track when New Horizons will reach Pluto - down to the second - with the Closest Approach to Pluto countdown clock. The distance to Pluto in miles is also displayed.

Location: Provides interactive views on the latest position of New Horizons and Pluto. Get a bird’s-eye view of our Solar System as New Horizons approaches Pluto. Rotate around a detailed 3D model of the New Horizons spacecraft, explore the Pluto system and its moons. Find Pluto in the sky from your home location, or even fly through some of the objects in the Kuiper Belt.

Timeline: Explore detailed New Horizons mission event dates and view select milestones in the interactive solar system simulator.

Guide: A multimedia guide to Pluto, its discovery, the first mission to explore it, and the controversy generated by its demotion to dwarf planet status.

News: Updated information on the latest mission news, data, and discoveries.

Poll: Do you agree with the IAU’s decision in 2006 to reclassify Pluto as a "dwarf planet"? Read both sides of the argument, and then have your say in this ongoing debate!

Pluto Safari is developed by the makers of SkySafari 4, an award-winning astronomy app that simulates the night sky from anywhere on planet Earth. Follow eclipses, occultations, and transits in Earth's sky - and beyond! Move up to SkySafari 4 Plus or Pro and view the planets and their moons as only NASA space probes have - even label every crater on them. SkySafari 4 Plus or Pro even adds wired or wireless control for Celestron, Meade, Orion, SkyWatcher, and many other computerized telescopes.
