Solar Telescope takes your iPad thousands of kilometers into space, directly to NASA's SDO-spacecraft. Observe the sun in seven different wavelengths and seven different shiny colors - updated around the clock. Enjoy a nice telescope interface and the feeling of a real view into space. Use multi-touch gestures to zoom in and see breathtaking solar flares. When solar wind speed rises above 500 km/s, the text-color changes to yellow. At 700 km/s it lights up in red color and you enjoy an exciting outlook.
• Explore seven different high resolution images of the sun, updated around the clock.
• Get real-time solar wind speed, sunspot number and solar x-ray status from NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center.
