    Hi fellows, may I know what is the Earth 3D application for? Besides providing a 3D rendition of the Earth, Moon, & Sun's orbits, any other interesting functions? Or ways to manipulate the model?

    Where can I read up more abt it?

    Thanx.

    That's the funny thing, I'm wondering if it is REAL, i.e. updates all positions if u have an ongoing wifi connection...scroll to your portion of the world & see if the app matches your real sky at any instant...

    No its not. Neither is google earth, or any satellite imaging service.

    Why? Because those pictures are taking when the satellite does a fly by. The only people that have live imaging are the military and such, and that is quite spendy to maintain. Many images for these types of services can be years old.

    In short, it is not a streaming live feed from a satellite. Its a compiled set of images taken over time.

    EDIT: I went through on 3d Earth a bit. They collect cloud information and emulate it for the sky. Otherwise, the rest stands true.
