A recent update to Google Earth now lets you search the sky above you. Download it here.

With about a hundred million stars and two hundred million galaxies, Sky in Google Earth lets you explore the heavens like never before.


With Earth’s new Sky feature, you can:

Zoom in to distant galaxies and nebulae

View constellations and the movements of the planets

Learn about the lifecycle of a star and different kinds of galaxies

Create and share your own imagery, placemarks and more

When you use Sky, the view is above your current location on Earth. For example, if you go to Paris and open Sky, you will see what is in the sky above Paris at the current time. When you exit Sky, you return to this same location.
