The latest version of Google Earth has a new feature which allows you to flip the default view (looking down upon satellite imagery of the earth) to looking up at imagery of the night sky gathered from telescopes.

No longer do you have to buy a telescope from ebay to do some star gazing (a bit pointless anyway if you live in an area with bad light pollution). Seeing all those billions of stars does make you feel pretty small though!
