Submission + - Google Earth for Star Gazing (bbc.co.uk)

Placid writes: "According to BBC News, a new add-on for Google Earth has been released, that allows users to view the constellations of Andromeda, Hydra and Vulpecula. From the article:
"Sky will allow astronomers a chance to glide through images of more than one million stars and 200 million galaxies. Optional layers allow users to explore images from the Hubble Space Telescope as well as animations of lunar cycles."
This latest add-on seems to be another product of the agreement made between NASA and Google in December 2006 that was designed to "put the most useful of NASA's information on the internet"; which ultimately created Google Moon and Google Mars."
