Be totally stunned as you approach this radiating star with a golden luminous sphere around it. Watch the animated solar flares forcefully erupt from its surface. Position yourself above Jupiter and watch as its large moons drift across the face of the planet, casting multiple eclipse shadows on its banded clouds and Great Red Spot. Move beyond our galaxy and look back at the spectacle that is the Milky Way.
