Google Sky is fun to play with. If you have an Android phone, Google Sky uses the compass and accelerometer to allow you to point your phone in any direction and see what stars and planets there are in that particular direction:

It isn't anything like Google Earth, but Universe Sandbox is really great software. If you love the universe you should check it out.

Edit: I made my avatar with Universe Sandbox.
