Main Question or Discussion Point

Microsoft is launching a new online virtual telescope project called Worldwide Telescope. It is an evolutionary step above Google Sky, and is located at http://www.worldwidetelescope.org. Both Google Sky and Worldwide Telescope have great potential for exploration and education in astronomy. I would encourage PF'ers to explore these tools and report their experiences in this thread.

[ Hint: turn the VOLUME DOWN on your computer before clicking the link if you are in a quiet room, there is a really noisy "Microsoft Splash" sound when it launches. ]

[ Another hint: Google sky is at http://www.google.com/sky/. Google Sky is entirely browser-based, whereas Worldwide Telescope requires a download. ]
