There’s a new application for all astronomy enthusiasts and people interested in the night sky, and it comes from the well-known people at Google.
All you need is the latest version of Google Earth, and in it you will find a new add-on application that allows you to view the night sky from your location. You can zoom in on galaxies, stars, nebulas, etc. The more you zoom in, the more detail you will see. You can even bookmark constellations and other objects of interest.
So go ahead. Download Google Earth, and start exploring space. And once you do that, go out and see what the real stars look like (which we do at our observatory).
