View the Universe,

On this great blog-site you can rotate the universe in 360 degrees .
You can also watch this in different wavelengths amazingly awesome!


You can also click the right mouse button over a random area and watch the constellations..I believe that was not in the help section?

I don't know if you did know about this? If not then enjoy


Chromoscope

Thank you for bringing it to my attention, truly an amazing sight...

I always wondered why companies other than Google haven't done something similar, well I hope there are more people willing to put work into those starmaps, eventually we will have 3d versions in the not so far future.

Excellent site thank you.

I noticed in the "far ir" it almost makes it appear to have a mass. It's interesting to observe the universe in such a way. It almost appears to be a sea of "stuff" out there.

I'll be using this site more to get a good look around.

I couldn't get the right click thingy to work?

That is great, thank you for the reply clarifying that.

That could really help giving me a better understanding of where I'm at in the universe here.

They've always made it sound like space is so empty, but that's not what I see in these views.

This is an amazing site! It's like Google earth for space!
It's a bit slow, anyone else getting that? Perhaps it's the amount of traffic ATS is bringing to their server.
S&F!

Is the big cluster of star systems the Milky Way or.....

is that a Huge cluster of galaxies that basically dominates our universe?

I'm not much into Astronomy although I do like to learn about it.

Awesome, love these kind of things, I even own a copy of Starry Night Pro Plus 6, and it's really amazing, you can see basically everything on the Universe, download extra information/update/plugins so you can see even more stuff etc.
You can see the sky from where you live, but clean and without clouds/pollution, create new planets/asteroids, editing their orbits to see what happens (like creating your own universe)...

I advise everyone to chcek it out, it's really amazing.

Chcek this video to see how it is


www.youtube.com...

It's like an google earth for the universe. have fun.
