Description

In 1987 Distant Suns first put the universe on your desktop. 27 years later it puts the universe in your shirt pocket.

Sporting a database of over 130,000 stars, along with nebula and galaxies, Distant Suns has earned the reputation of both having one of the most realistic and beautiful displays of the night sky, while being one of the easiest to use astronomy programs available for the most casual sky watchers and serious astronomers alike.

Features include:

•No Internet required. Just a sense of wonder.
•Up to date space and astronomy news provided by Astronomy Magazine
•In partnership with the SETI Institute you can now see the real-time exosolar targets being monitored in the search for signs of extraterrestrial intelligence.
•Zoom in on the planets, see Jupiter and her moons or the rings of Saturn.
•Now universal, so it will work on both iPads and iPhones
•See where other users with Beacons.
•Push notifications to ensure you'll never miss important space events.
•Compass aware, just aim and gaze.
•Over 130,000 pinpoint stars scintillating like diamond dust in the palm of your hand
•Realistic ghostly band of the Milky Way
•Stories behind each constellation
•Viewpoint Lock keeps any planet centered
•Change the look of the stars
•Galaxies, nebula and star clusters
•Hubble Space Telescope images
•All 8 planets (Pluto is optional)
•GPS aware
•Red interface to preserve your night vision
•What's Up? Gives a quick one snapshot overview of where all of the important stuff is
•Touching the sky to reveal hidden data for each object
•Planetary data and information

Why settle for eye-candy when you can settle for mind-candy.

Customer Reviews

Easy to use, lots of nice features

I have three astronomy apps installed right now. This is my favorite. I can easily choose an object and find out more about it, and I use the 'What's Up' feature a lot. I like the way constellation wireframes and illustrations aren't distracting.

Thank you for a nice app.
