Time Travel in Space – With Google Sky Maps

Google Sky Maps is my favorite “gee-whiz” app on my Android phone. My youngest daughter is an astronomy buff and we frequently go out in the yard and find constellations with this app. Now it gets better by allowing us to go back in time. Now we can see what our ancestors saw in the night sky. That’s pretty cool.

Today, the new version of Google Sky Map lets you time travel to see the sky at a specific date, past or future. After smooth travel to the desired year, you can fast forward or rewind in various speeds and watch how the sky changes.

While viewing another time period, you can still search for your favorite objects.
