Google Sky Map on the Way?

Via Ogle Earth:

Sky Maps coming soon: Being finalized in the Google Maps API Group: Google Sky’s data accessible via the Maps API, ready for embedding in your website.
That's great news (see the demo over here), this is the sort of thing I was hoping would turn up at some point. Google Sky is great and all but the ability to create applications on your own website that make use of their sky map... That could be very interesting.

Decided to sit down on a wet Sunday afternoon and see what I could do with the new Sky Maps API. The obvious thing for me to do first was to look at PLASTIC-enabling the new maps application. Google Maps as Tupperware anyone?

Of course this was help enormously by the hacking around I did with Google Earth back in August.
