Stargazing at Sky

Google is attempting to interest Internet users in stargazing with the launch of Sky. This is a new feature of Google Earth. Sky lets people view the night sky through a virtual telescope. You can zoom in to see images of 100 million stars and 200 million galaxies.


Google has complied data from Hubble space telescope, NASA and other scientific institutions. Google Earth users can select a location on the planet and then click "Switch to Sky" to see the view of the night sky as seen from that spot. They can navigate this like a road map.

Hi Steven,
Thanks for visiting. I found this to be interesting too. Before my Dad passed away, I had named a star for him, so now I'll be able to find it.
