Explore the Sky
Until now, Google Earth has let you zoom in from outer space to view our planet. With Earth's new Sky feature, you can turn that perspective around and explore the wonders of the heavens.
View images of distant galaxies and nebulae from the Hubble Space Telescope, learn about the movement of the planets and the lifecycle of the stars, and more.
Fly To Any Place in The World
Whether you are looking for a specific address, the intersection of two streets, a city, a state, a zip code, or a country, just type it into the "Fly To" box and hit Search.
Your World in 3D - Zoom, Tilt and Rotate
Use your mouse, keyboard or trackball to navigate the world. Grab the image with your mouse to move around. The navigation compass allows you to manipulate the view in multiple ways.
Drag the right slider up and down to zoom in and out. Drag the top slider left and right to tilt the view. To rotate the image, spin the navigator's on-screen wheel.
With Google Earth 4.3, see 3D buildings faster and in more cities than ever before. Now you can access hundreds of new buildings from the world's cities, including San Francisco, Boston, Orlando, Munich, Zurich, and dozens more.
Fly seamlessly through the landscape with new navigation controls. Swoop from outer space to street level and leap from one building top to another. Use the look joystick to view buildings as if you were standing right in front of them.
Light and Shadow
With the new Sunlight feature, you can watch the sunrise and sunset from anywhere. Move the time slider to watch dusk, dawn and shadows move across the Earth.
Street View, available in Google Maps, is now in Google Earth! Fly into panoramic images of select cities and take a 360 degree tour.
