September 29, 2009: We Are Here

Got an afternoon to kill? Like astronomy? Then you'll love GigaGalaxy Zoom, a new project from the European Southern Observatory in support of the International Year of Astronomy 2009. Starting with a picture of the sky as it would appear from a completely dark location, you can zoom in on features through successively more-powerful telescopes. It's like Google Maps for the night sky, and a great resource for any game that uses GURPS Space.

The best part? They're adding more pictures all the time. The worst part? One killable afternoon isn't nearly enough.
