WorldWide Telescope

Nebula 1       ISS       Galaxy

WorldWide Telescope is a powerful (and free!) visualization program that gives you instant access to the most complete collection of astronomical imagery available. WWT allows you to explore and learn about the known universe, record and share videos of your explorations, upload your own data to view through our interface, and much, much more! WWT has woven together astronomical images at all wavelengths into an “interface” that resembles their natural context–the Sky–while simultaneously offering much deeper opportunities to learn about the science behind the images. This depth and breadth is accessed through a rich and interactive environment that becomes intuitive once you understand how it works. The navigation menu on the left offers tutorial videos and diagrams to help guide you through the learning process.
