WorldWide Telescope

Dude…  This is cool.  Sure – there’s other stuff you can get for this, like things you pay for (like Starry Night or RedShift) – or you can also use Google Sky.  It’s from Microsoft, but don’t hold that against it; it’s pretty darn sweet for free and it’s better and has more features than Google Sky.

Beyond just being a pretty cool and easy to use free planetarium software, it can control your telescope (if you have one, and live somewhere it’s nice and dark), but some of the guided tours are actually informative and interesting.  For those that watch shows like The Universe, you might even recognize some of the folks that have contributed some guided tours.

    Forget about google sky, check out wikisky. Even WorldWide Telescope cannot match wikisky’s image quality
