If you ever had a doubt that we’re all just playing in the Google Universe – doubt no more.

Google Earth has gone Universal. That is Google Earth which up until this week was limited only to our little blue planet now has a ‘sky’ portion that shows you the stars from your location.

This is perhaps the greatest thing to happen to astronomy thus far in the young history of the Internet.

How many times have I struggled – traveling as much as I do – trying to figure out the sky from wherever my travels take me? – Sure the charts help but Google Earth Sky mode is…

AWESOME.

It is the most fluid, dynamic and visually accurate astronomy program i have ever seen and i strongly encourage anyone with an interest in the skies to check it out.
