This odd little screensaver features small planets swooping and flying around the sun like you will NEVER see in the solar system, moving quite fast. The planets and the sun are small enough that it is mostly hard to see any detail about them.

You can set the number of planets, enable or disable the sun texture, and set point of view to from a planet or around the sun.

I could not see any difference with the texture on or off, there is not a lot of difference between the two points of view, but if you set the planet amount at 4 or more you will get ringed planets. I set it for 9 once and it looked quite “different” with 4 ringed planets flying around like great birds.
