Virtual Planetarium Skymaps

Your Sky lets you produce sky maps for any time and date, observing location, and viewpoint. Terrific! Each map you make includes an ephemeris for the Sun, Moon, planets, and any tracked asteroid or comet.

Playing with numbers or, there's hope

I liked an electoral map a friend emailed me and posted about yesterday as it hit the very disappointed feelings I had after the national election. Then I ran across another map - not the winner-take-all electoral map, but this one (from a Boing Boing post) shaded to match the national vote in each state. This one gives me more hope.

Yahoo! Images Search

Yahoo! Images Search has expanded their image collection to 1 billion images (vs. 880 million that Google has). Why am I telling your this? Because you should remember to try it if your habitual Google Images search doesn't find exactly what you want.
