Google Sky for radio astronomy

Google Sky can be used to explore the radio Universe! The application Google Earth can be used in sky mode to view contents of galaxy catalogs. The catalog file allows a connection to databases containing images and spectra. Download and open this KML (Keyhole Markup Language) file in Google Earth to get started.

A sample of galaxies will be indicated on the sky. By clicking any given object, an imaging and spectral database will be queried and information returned.
