Welcome to Mr. Ullrich's Blog! This blog is for 8th Grade Earth Science and Physical Science students. We will learn topics such as Astronomy, Geology and Meteorology.

An amazing view of space from your computer!
An excellent tool that every one should try out is Google Sky. It is an amazing program for anyone interested in learning about space. You can download Google Earth/Sky for free! After you install Google Earth/Sky, just open the program. Near the top of the page there is a small picture of Saturn. When you click on it you switch automatically from Google Earth to Google Sky. Now you can search for any celestial object you would like to view. You can search manually or type a name in the search box and it will automatically move to what you would like to observe. There is an assortment of tools to use, so experiment with it! One of my favorite tools is the education center; make sure it is checked off on the tool bar to the left. Now you can click on many objects and get information, images and even videos! Try it out and let me know what you think :)
