NASA's SkyView is the Internet's virtual telescope, and "generat[es] images of any part of the sky at wavelengths in all regimes from Radio to Gamma-Ray." Those individuals without much of an astronomy background need not fear, as NASA's got it covered with their "Non-Astronomers Page". The "SkyView FAQ" answers such general visitor's questions as "What is SkyView?", "What Do I Need to Use SkyView?", and "Can I Freely Reprint Images Obtained in SkyView?" The "SkyView Blog" has been keeping visitors in the know about the latest SkyView happenings since April 2008. The latest blog entry makes reference to the unusual images that can be generated in SkyView, and the "Image Gallery" contains over 10,000 images submitted by users of SkyView. Finally, the link at the bottom of the homepage titled "Where Do I Find?", offers visitors valuable information from NASA, including materials on rockets and space travel, planets, stars, constellations, and homework help by a "high energy astronomer".
