We’ve all looked up to the familiar constellations wondering about life on other planets, pondering the existence of life outside of Earth and coming to terms with just how extraneous we are compared to the vastness of space. But rather than looking up on tiny white specs, we can look with immaculate detail and wonder just the same.
WikiSky allows you to zoom in and out on nebulae, constellations, and galaxies. It provides you with not only breath-taking images, but with very detailed and technical information about the area you’re zoomed in on. But, if you’re anything like me, the images of the Milky Way and NGC 7293 will satisfy the astronomer in you just as well.
