After quite a wait it's finally here, WWT by Microsoft
WorldWideTelescope Homepage This thing knocks spots off of Google earth and contains imagery from a multitude of telescopes including X-Ray, IR and UV. So get searching for those anomalies boys and Girls

For those of you who aren't into buying windows just so you can have a virtual telescope, there is an open source alternative, Stellarium.

If you're using a Debian based OS (Ubuntu included), you can find it in your synaptic package manager, no need to go downloading from the web.

It's pretty much on par with Microsoft's WWT, just without the needlessly flashy menus.

It looks to me like Microsoft used Stellarium as a basis for what their WWT should look like.


So off you go Linux and Mac users... Stellarium.

(Just remember to tell it where in the world you are, otherwise, you'll be looking at the sky from somewhere in France.)

I have Stellarium for a PC. In fact, I originally found out about it in the astronomy forum on ATS. I don't remember where I got it, but I imagine I just used the wonders of Google or clicked on a poster's link.

How disappointing. I thought you meant World War Three.


Seriously, this will be great fun. I will try it at home tonight ‘coz I don’t think work will let me.

Lets see who will be first to find a glitch or an empty patch of sky and cry “cover up! They’re hiding Nibiru!!”

Heh, I was thinking it has something to do with Internet 2.0... like, World Web Two, or something to that effect.

It's not a star mapper like Stellarium it's an image mapper, mapping images from several telescope, IR, UV, Microwave telescopes onto the skydome.
