Google Earth Sky View

The skies usually take the inquisitiveness in me every time I see the stars and the moon. Somehow I think that they’re romantic in a special way. I once planned to buy a telescope and told myself that I will try to look at the heavens during my free time at night. But alas, I don’t have the money to buy me a powerful telescope.

Browsing on my Google account last Saturday, I stumbled upon Google Earth 4.2 and found that it already has a sky view that shows our Solar System and beyond. I’ve installed the freeware version and was quite satisfied with the rendering of outer space so I decided to keep the program.
