A 360º virtual tour of our Solar System using SkyBox Studio by Thought Café

Tools used

Author Notes

Skybox is a great plugin! We have been trying to make a 360 tour of the solar system, and when Skybox came around it finally made it a feasible project.

Take a 360 degree virtual tour of our Solar System, with the help of everyone’s favorite (bad) astronomer—and Crash Course host—Phil Plait!

For the most immersive #360Video experience use Cardboard (http://bit.ly/1HfYD5m) with the YouTube Android app. If you do not have Cardboard, you can use the YouTube apps for Android or iOS and move your mobile device to look around the solar system. On a desktop computer, use the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Opera browsers to click and drag your mouse and follow along as we explore our Solar System.
