Google Sky

Google Sky, using the same interface as Google Maps, provides an exciting way to browse and explore the universe. You can find the positions of the planets and constellations on the sky and even watching the birth of distant galaxies as seen by the Hubble Space Telescope.

Pictures can sometimes fire the imagination better than a hundred lectures. Print out pictures and decorate the classroom for National Space Day.
