Geek Tip: Get to Know Distant Stars With Wikisky

If you can't make it to the planetarium, don't fret — just point your browser to Wikisky, and you'll probably get a more in-depth look at distant galaxies than you would at any planetarium anyway. I've already introduced you to Stellarium, which brings the stars to you in a desktop app, but Wikisky takes things a step further by letting you zoom in on faraway stars, Google Map style.

However, Wikisky is pretty complex and will take some fiddling around with to get the right view of space, but once you do, you'll find images of neighboring galaxies like the one pictured here. Amazing, right?
