WWTelescope — the next big thing?

WorldWide Telescope could do for astronomy what Google Earth has done for the Earth sciences. I haven’ seen it yet; it is coming out some time in the spring of 2008. With WWTelescope, one will be able to view any place in the sky with imagery from the Hubble Space Telescope as well as from ground-based telescopes.

Will it replace the Starry Night software that I have been using in my Astronomy unit? Only if I can set it for viewing from any time and any place.

Grace and Peace
