    We would like to offer you the chance to learn some very cool technologies that are free and that you can use anytime. We'll lead you through three of these--Google Earth, Google Sky, and the Aladin Applet--to create your own astroimages. These tools are fun to play with but they are not children's toys: they put much of the world's information from earth and space science at your fingertips, and they are used by professionals in many fields.
    If you choose to follow through the whole suite to create your own astroimages, we'll collect those images, publish them on Flickr, and embed them in this page (below) so that you can direct friends and family to look at your creations.

    This exercise is designed to work with the desktop installation version of Google Earth, which includes the Sky view and access to all that is linked from Sky, including (through Simbad) the Aladin applet. But there are online versions of these activities (and a desktop version of Aladin): you can see an Earth view in Google Maps here; this view doesn't contain Sky, but you can access a version of Sky through a browser here. (If you want to see the highlights of the universe in pretty pictures, you might want to explore Sky in the online version.) Finally, here are the desktop versions (that you can install on your own computer) of Google Earth (which includes Sky) and the Aladin software. All of this is presented to you in a Wiki; you can get your own free Wikispace here.
