Thanks Rob, that is awesome...watched it twice and will watch it again.

I love astronomy and have a lovely telescope. Use it mostly during the summer when it's really dark here.

Hi Chonsi,

I'm not good with computers but somehow figure things out the hard way. I copied the address and saved it to a word document. Then I retrieved the document and pasted it back into the address bar and it worked. Lastly, I saved it on my flash drive for school. I want to show it to my kidlets also when we study astronomy.

There's probably an easier way but it worked for me. Hope it works for you. If you find an easier way to do it please let me know:-6

WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And to the Allegri "Miserere" - interesting choice of music to listen to while gazing at such an array. The penitential psalm for Good Friday in the Christian calendar.

For anyone interested in the Kings College Cambridge version.. the whole of it is here

Chonsigirl and Kathy Ellen, the Windows to the Universe website at http://www.windows.ucar.edu/ might interest your students. The site is even configurable for beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. It's cooool. :-6

Nomad: Yup, and Jupiter doesn't even have a surface, less'n ye wanna call a dense ball of liquid hydrogen a surface. Not optimum topography for a stroll.

Just skip the copying to a word document part. Copy it straight into your address bar then save it (bookmark) it.

You didn't get past Jupiter by the sound of it - things got hotter.
