Eye on the sky — from your desktop

You’ve probably experienced Google Earth. Now Google Earth takes you to infinity and beyond.

Sky in Google Earth is produced by Google in partnership with the Space Telescope Science Institution in Baltimore, the science operations center for the Hubble Space Telescope, which supplies the images seen in Google Earth.

To access Sky in Google Earth, you need to download the latest version of Google Earth at earth.google.com.

But once you have the program, you can traverse the sky and navigate around galaxies just as you do the Earth.
