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

In 1987 Distant Suns first put the universe on your desktop. In 2009 it puts the universe in your shirt pocket. The world of astronomy was opened up first for Commodore Amiga users in 1987, making it one of most venerable software titles around.

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 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.
