Here is a 3D tour of our solar system. In slowly across the system you will start at the sun, moving to each planet in order you will rotate around the planet twice. In the corner you see a message of the name of the planet , the oribital period, the mean distance from the sun, the equitorial radius, and the rotational period. After the second rotation you will move to the next one. In quick travel throught the universe you start at pluto and do the same as above without the rotating around the planets. These various ways of traveling are shown against a quite attrative background of space, colored nebulas, stars, and sun relections.

You can change the display and audio settings, the font color, and under camera you can use quick travelering throught the solar system, slowly across the system, space race, fly and fly and fly, or planet jumping. Also you can show planet names, show star dust, show info about planets, show more stars and use full ambient or not.

This is very nice screensaver.
