A simple planetary orbital rendering
When I was in senior high school, I was vert interested in Astronomy, especially calculating and visualizing the Planets. I devoted in programming of the location of the Nine Planets. In those day I used PC-9801F2(NEC) and N88-DISK BASIC(86). Now is the time to remake those programs into Windows application.
I am planning to make programs such as follows:
Calculate the nine planets' location and show how they are seen from space.
These are sample outputs. This program is a 3D-MapViewer with KWlib-3D.
|The Earth||The Moon |
|The Mars||The Jupiter |
The orbit of the planets.
