Newsvine is sponsoring ElectionVine, a site that aggregates monthly presidential election poll results from web sites utilizing its ElectionVine Widget, seen to the right. You may notice that it allows you to filter results for just this site, the entire Interweb, as well as by party. If there’s enough interest I might add it to DrikoLand’s sidebar. Vote now!

Google Sky

GoogleToday Google announced Sky for Google Earth, a brand-new interface to Google Earth that lets you look at constellations; watch planets in motion; view high-resolution space imagery compiled from “one million photographs from scientific and academic sources;” and much more.

If you’re interested in this sort of thing you should definitely consider checking out Celestia and Stellarium, two excellent, free planetarium applications.
