Midnight Planets 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 panoramic context, and provides a number of options for viewing in 3D.

Customer Reviews

An indispensable interface to a vast quantity of rover data

There is so much data being sent to the Web from the rover missions that it's hard to get a handle on it all. Midnight Planets provides a variety of ways to track the rovers through the images they send us. My two favorite features: the rapid VR assembly of NavCam images and the ability to display stereo pairs as either red-blue anaglyphs or stereograms. The VR display is so cool, as it displays the rover's path; tapping on sol numbers lets you drive forward with the rover across the Martian terrain. The developer has been working on display of rover data since the MERs landed, and it shows.

About time an app like this arrives.

As a student of astronomy and physics, also working with jpl I never could find a website that would allow me to skim through all the photos curiosity had taken. It's almost as if nasa cherry picked the photo's they wanted me to see, rather than share the experience of actually being there. This app finally takes me there. Kind of sad, but as new horizons heads for Pluto, I wish the photos would update like this app. Because I just know they are going to horde every photo until the make a press release of their finest images getting there.

The best way to view Mars rover images

This app is absolutely the best way to view the photos being taken by the Mars rovers. It does a great job of placing the images into 3D virtual reality where one can move forward and backward daily in time to see what Curiosity Opportunity have seen while controlling which of the numerous cameras are being used.
