Xplanet 1.3.1 (2016-06-04)

Long Description:
Xplanet is a solar system simulator which calculates accurate positions for the major planets and satellites. It displays multiple bodies, eclipse shadows, and customizable labels and markers. It is normally used to create computer wallpapers, which may be updated with the latest cloud maps or the regions of Earth which are in sunlight, but its usefulness goes far beyond: Xplanet is based on NASA SPICE Toolkit. The NASA Spice system is an ancillary information system that provides scientists and engineers the capability to include space geometry and event data into mission design, science observation planning, and science data analysis software. The principle components of the SPICE system are SPICE Toolkit software and SPICE data files, often called "kernels." SPICE is used throughout NASA and within many other U.S. and international agencies for organizing, distributing, and accessing ancillary data associated with space science missions. The NAIF website contains the few important rules regarding using SPI
