As reported back in February [webmasterworld.com] Microsoft R&D has been developing an interesting astronomy application allowing users to see pictures from a variety of observatories. The software is now available for download as a public beta.
WorldWide Telescope is a rich Web application that brings together imagery from the best ground- and space-based observatories across the world to allow people to easily explore the night sky through their computers.

Andy thanks for sharing I downloaded it during lunch and checked it out I have been waiting for this to come out since I heard about it last month. The really cool thing is I can even check out the night skies in your neck of the woods and I don't even have to be there it's going to really give the classroom a new way to show the stars.
The audio ads the extra bonus that you don't get out of the other tool out on the net.
