Look at mode?
« on: July 11, 2008, 09:58:33 AM »
Is there some way I can look at another body.

Say I was hanging out at the moon, and wanted to look back at earth while staying with (on) the moon.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks

Not really... There's an undocumented camera mode that's activated by hitting the middle mouse button (sorry no keyboard shortcut at the moment).

This focuses the camera on the current body and it's parent.

It works good with the Earth and the Moon.
