Google Earth combines the power of Google Search with satellite imagery, maps, terrain and 3D buildings… and now you can explore the sky too using this mapping software. With about a hundred million stars and two hundred million galaxies, Sky in Google Earth lets you explore the heavens…
Google launched Sky in Google Earth that lets you view and navigate through 100 million individual stars and 200 million galaxies. High resolution imagery and informative overlays offer a creative learning about space. Google is introducing seven informative layers that illustrate various celestial bodies and events.
Sky was created by Google’s Pittsburgh engineering team by stitching together imagery from numerous scientific third parties. The initiative was the outcome of the University of Washington’s participation in the Google Visiting Faculty Program.
