The American Astronomical Society 211th meeting is going on and Google has a workshop there.
So the GoogleSky folks added a lot of layers to Sky.
GoogleSky really looks much nicer now!
And indeed, if you now look at the default layers, you will find whole new series of folders: Featured Observatories, Current Sky Events, Education Center, Historical Sky Maps… Not all of them are filled yet, but I’m sure they soon will be. Enjoy.
[Update 2008-01-10: Google Lat-Long Blog now has the announcement.]
