Google Earth

Sorry guys... things have been really busy with my class and with homeschooling my kids.

That being said, I want to tell you about a very cool resource. It's fairly new. It's called Google Earth.

Have you ever seen the satellite pictures on Google looking down at the earth? You know, the scary ones where the world can practically see into your backyard? This is the same idea, only the telescope is pointed out toward space.

You can zoom in and explore distant galaxies and nebulae! Not simulations, real pictures!

It really is unbelievable. Enjoy!

Yay! I just recently discovered this and am planning to use it to show cool stuff to my homeschool class.
