Worldwide Telescope goes Silverlight
Wow! If you have Silverlight installed then Worldwide Telescope will now work in IE 8 (and whatever else you have Silverlight installed in) without having to install the binary! Very nice! I’ve been using this for a while, but I had to install it. This is great! So even our Mac using friends can enjoy this fine software.

Use the number pad “+“ and “-“ to zoom in and out. Drag the mouse to move the through the sky. Hold the “cntl” key while dragging to rotate. And shift click objects to get details. Use the “Esc” key to escape or get out of something. I haven’t figured out how to orbit yet. But, once I do, I’ll update here. Try the tours too. There great!
