Every Thursday, Microsoft discounts some popular Windows and Windows Phone apps and games as a part of the Red Stripe Deals. This week's deals are in and come with a number of handy apps and games for both platforms at attractive prices. Starting with a unique app called Space Weather which displays real-time images of the sun, web cam images from across the globe, location of satellites, images of Earth as seen from the space and the changing environmental conditions in near-Earth space or the space from the Sun's atmosphere to the Earth's atmosphere.
The app description reads:
Space weather is the concept of changing environmental conditions in near-Earth space or the space from the Sun's atmosphere to the Earth's atmosphere. Space weather affects our planet, our technology, and all living things in many different ways. Solar flares, geomagnetic storms, and solar radiation are a few ways space weather can wreak havoc on the earth. It can also create beautiful auroras can that be seen near the poles and sometimes much further.
