http://www.shatters.net/celestia/ and http://www.stellarium.org/ are more impressive, but I like the effort.

I am a director of SKY-MAP.ORG. Go to www.sky-map.org and you will see that what Google has just announced already exists in web-based version for about a year. We have SDSS, IRAS, and H-Alpha surveys integrated in our system and we have 100s of millions of objects mapped. Only for HDF we have > 10.000 galaxies mapped. We also have articles related to hundreds of thousands of objects and many features that Google doesn’t have. We would be happy to find a way to cooperate with Google.
Here are some links:

Horsehead Nebula: http://www.sky-map.org/?object=Horsehead Nebula&zoom=9&img_source=IMG_all&img_borders=1
M45, The Pleiades: http://www.sky-map.org/?img_source=IMG_all&zoom=7&ra=3.772&de=23.948&img_borders=1

It should be "Earth" and "Moon" if you capitalized the "M" in "Mars". :)

In Google Earth, I tried to draw the directions from Venus to Jupiter, it doesn't work :-/

Can someone tell me the difference between Starry Night Software and Google Sky?

Can you use Google Sky with telescopes?

Thanks.

I wonder if sites like googlesightseeing.com will pop up focusing on user submitted images – but this time for the sky.

Pretty cool. If Google Earth adds a word processor and HTML designer, I can remove all my other software :-)
