Google Earth 4.2 Looks to the Sky

Google introduced a new version of its Google Earth application on Wednesday that does more than show whatis below your feet. Version 4.2 also lets users look to the sky and explore the stars.

Users can explore stars and galaxies, view Hubble space telescope images, view the movements of celestial bodies, find constellations, and more.

Google Earth 4.2 with Sky is available as a free download from the Google Web site. Itis a public beta, so expect to find a few bugs.
