First the Earth, now the Sky

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on August 22, 2007

Google’s just added the Sky to Google Earth, using images from various sources, including the Hubble. Sadly it doesn’t just switch on – you’ll need to download a new version of the application first.

There’s some fantastic imagery there, and it’s well worth exploring the bundled KML files. I rather enjoyed the “User’s Guide to Galaxies”…
