With Distant Suns you can:
*Set your location from any place on earth
*Change the date and time to show the sky of the past or future, like a little time-machine in your hands
*Learn the stories behind each constellation
*See the realistic ghostly band of the Milky Way
*Follow the moon through its phases, and the planets through their monthly dance
*Toggle between a label-rich sky and a serene view of the stars alone

*Touch the sky to view extensive data on each object
Perfect for the whole family. The only requirement is sense of wonder!
