Distant Suns (Max) – for iPad and iPhone
“I am putting together some mobile astronomy apps for our local “Sky’s the Limit” Observatory in Twentynine Palms, CA. I have been searching for something as good as, or better than, Distant Suns. Short answer: I have not found it yet. …nothing portrays the night sky as well as Distant Suns.
Distant Suns has been your personal guide to the cosmos since 1985. First on the desktop, now right in your hands. While others play games, you can travel to the stars.
Award-winning Distant Suns has the reputation of both having one of the most realistic displays of the night sky while being one of the easiest to use astronomy apps for casual sky watchers as well as serious astronomers.
“Distant Suns is easy to use and understand. The graphics are amazing. I use it every chance I get. I love showing people the stars.” Lee Brandon-Cremer, Space Shuttle Almanac
“Are you an astronomer? Where? Your app does exactly what I hoped, that is it is — similar to how I feel about art or archaeology,— it shows me the beauty of the universe while helping me feel more strongly my small little place in a great larger context. Astronomy, contemplating the stars and outer space gives me a great feeling of the sublime. I look at your app every day!” Dr. Mark Brandl, Switzerland
