Geo and Heliocentric Model

My roommate found this awesome online model and shared it with me. It shows all the Jovian moons we are studying in class now, can show you the constellation the sun is in, and even has a feature that shows a model for Tycho Brahe's vision of the solar system. It can show day by day positioning and is really an awesome thing to explore if you want to check it out.
