About the download, Mars24 is a light program that takes up less storage than most software in the section Science & Education. It's a program very heavily used in countries such as Pakistan and Germany.

Changes

  • User may specify an MJD when setting clock to a fixed Earth time.
  • UTC to TT conversion uses leap-second table lookup where possible rather than always use parametric formula.
  • Switched to ImageIO for saving PNG images to disk.

Mars24 is a Java program and browser applet which displays a Mars "sunclock", a graphical representation of the planet Mars showing its current sun- and nightsides, along with a numerical readout of the time in 24-hour format.

Other displays include a plot showing the relative orbital positions of Mars and Earth and a diagram showing the solar angle for a given location on Mars.
