Google Sky

In case there has ever been any doubt I must confess that I am a complete and total geek. I also really love astronomy. For about 4 years now I have been trying to justify buying a 14 inch Newtonian reflector telescope. Well it looks like the guys at Google Earth have saved me the trouble. The latest version of GoogleEarth v4.2 gives you the ability to "turn the cameras around" and look out at the stars. Phil Plait has a great review of the program on his site I'd love to blog about it more but this typing is getting in the way of me looking at some really cool images of the heavens.
