Midnight Planets

By Midnight Martian

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Midnight Planets is Midnight Martian's ongoing project for visualizing other worlds. Currently the app lets you explore Mars as seen by the Mars Rovers Curiosity, Spirit and Opportunity. It lets you view almost every image returned by the rovers in context, and provides a number of options for viewing in 3D.

What's New in Version 1.3

This update is required to support a new filename format for Curiosity Mastcam, MAHLI and MARDI images. Previous versions of the app cannot display images with the new filename format in the panoramic view, so you will need this update in order to see them. Also, the data set for previous versions of the app will stop being updated at some point.

Other changes in this version:

- Some additional support for written content.

- Adjusted brightness of calibrated MER Pancam images to better match background Navcam images.

- Bug fixes and minor improvements.
