Current Version: 2.6 (October 31, 2008)

While there are many nice weather applications for the Macintosh, there aren't many applications that show realtime conditions on other planets and heavenly bodies, such as our very own sun. Solscape is a "solar data browser" application that grabs up-to-the minute images of the sun in multiple light wavelengths. Solscape also monitors current solar flare, geomagnetic, and Aurora activity, providing current Aurora Borealis information and warnings for your location, along with real time Aurora images when available. Solscape gets all of its information via the Internet and compiles it in a single, easy to use application. You can save and archive the data that Solscape collects for later use, and you can tell Solscape to automatically grab the data when you want. Solscape is freeware; you may use Solscape for free for as long as you wish without any restrictions.

Version 2.6 adds/changes the following:

  • All SOHO images now update correctly (the image format changed from GIF to JPG).

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.

These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
