A lot of folks in our district like Google Earth, and now it's augmented with Google Sky. There's an older tool that I've shown to some teachers in the past that I also think is still worthwhile, called Celestia. It's a free download for Mac, Windows, and Linux users.

I've made an instructional video introducing the software; kind of a "try before you buy" experience to see if you want to invest the time. Celestia is an excellent tool for teachers of science and astronomy at a variety of levels. You can get started quickly for elementary applications, or plan to spend 2-4 hours preparing a lesson for high school students.

Watch the video here on Classroom 2.0, or subscribe to my podcast feed where I also published the video.
