Distant Suns - see the stars

Website - Freeware

reviewed by ClifNotes, Feb 2006




Distant Suns 6.0-Special Edition-Free Version is a great way to see the stars and the constellations just as if it was a clear, dark night at your desk. Distant Suns SE allows you to view the night sky as it currently appears outside your house, or any time in the past or future. You can choose which directions to look and whether you wish to see the outlines of the constellations displayed. Other features allow you to zoom in on some of the planets for a closer look, or hover above the earth for a look at our home.


There is also a free Distant Suns screensaver available at Download.com.
