Google Unveils Browser Version of Google Sky

Google on Thursday launched a browser version of the much-appreciated Google Sky application.

According to Official Google Blog "This release brings the universe to every browser and makes Sky accessible to just about anyone with an Internet connection — from school children to professional astronomers — in 26 different languages."

That means you don't have to download the Google Earth application to watch the Sky any more. You can search for planets and distant galaxies from the comfort of your browser.

Sounds good.

You can also listen to Earth & Sky podcasts and watch some beautiful images from Hubble telescope and others.

Sky in Google Earth, which launched last August, is been used by some 350 million users, says Google.

Microsoft is also planning a similar application with Microsoft World Wide Telescope, which we reviewed last week. You can see the post here.
