Sneak preview of the SkyViewer

Want to see what the sky will look like from your backyard tonight? How about from Sydney, Australia? How about from the North Pole on your birthday? You can check out a very early version of the Java desktop SkyViewer application. Using it you can tour the sky from any place on the Earth and for any time or date. You will need to get Java installed on your computer to run the application. The area of Scorpio and Sagittarius is shown in the screen shot at right. You can choose the location on the earth, and then use the clock control to move time forward and backward at whatever rate you choose. Click on this link to download the sneak preview.
