This site, produced by the Space Telescope Science Institute, is terrific. You can get the latest Hubble news, see spectacular images, learn about the science and engineering of the telescope, and much more. In the "Fun" section, you can see a map of the world and find the point where the Hubble is directly overhead, and you can add the sun and various artificial satellites. This map is animated, and every thirty seconds or so, the icons move on the globe to keep up-to-date. Another feature, "Skywatch," is a podcast that tells what's in the night sky and what's interesting out there in the solar system. And there are more Fun features . . . This is a super site--you'll both enjoy and learn!!
