Google earth

  1. Sep 21, 2009 #1
    when you log in to google earth it seems to go generally above where i am. when i press the sky button on it does it show the sky-space directly above me? i'm very new to this as you might tell. very clear skies tonight though so i thought i'd try to get my bearings on a few stars. any tips also? tx

    When I start Google Earth, it is centered over the US and nowhere near where I am (on the east coast). When I click "explore sky", I get a close-up of the galaxy M-101, with a bunch of menu options around it... After a quick look, I don't see how to set a location, though.
