It’s time to unleash your inner astronaut! The Distant Suns app has been around awhile and is one of the more popular astronomy-related applications for iPhone and now the iPad.

Distant Suns is an app for both serious astronomers and beginners (its very user friendly) and includes a wealth of information about astronomical objects and fun “fly to” features.

This app regularly sells for $9.99, so this is a great chance to own one of your very own. (…) Read the rest of Win ‘Distant Suns’ iPhone App (76 words)
