The Earth, Stars, and Planets in 3D

One of the coolest new features of the WWT Solstice Borealis Beta (released at the beginning of Jan) is the ability to see the Earth, Stars, and Planets in a stereoscopic 3D effect.  I’ve been using the Anaglyph mode (View |  {arrow} | Stereo | Anaglyph) which uses the stylish red/cyan glasses shown below to not only look at the Stars, but you can zoom all the way out and see the lattice structure made up galaxies of the universe.  AnaglyphChecking out the planets, like Mars, Saturn, etc is also very impressive.  Going down to Earth, you can change your perspective by holding down the ctrl key and then you can fly into objects like Mount St. Helens

Check it out if you have a pair of red/cyan glasses – they are all the rage 🙂
