Google Earth is a free, downloadable application that uses a collection of organized satellite images allowing the
user to scan, pan, tilt and zoom down on virtually any location on the planet. Teachers can also create or
download “layers” of information to view with these images. You can also browse the sky and heavenly objects
such as stars, constellations, galaxies, planets, and the moon.

As an updated feature Google Earth now allows photo - realistic buildings from cities around the world, dawn to
dusk views, as well as swoop navigation.
