One of the best websites I've seen in ages:

http://panoramas.dk/

You'll need to have Quicktime installed for any of it to work. A good starting place is the view from the top of Mount Everest, which is at:

Load, click, drag, look around the top of the world.

It's good, isn't it? One from my sparkly things to waste time with when I should be doing something else folder.

As is:

http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/primer/java/scienceopticsu/powersof10/

which starts off with a view ten million light years from earth and then zooms in by ten each time until you go into the Milky Way, then approach the solar system, and then zoom in on earth, and then come to ground in -believe it or not - Tallahassee, the view zooming in on a writer um, I mean an oak tree there and then delving down and down through its leaves into cells and atoms and then quarks.

To judge from the final quark picture if there is a Grand Designer of Everything then I think he also did the Grateful Dead's lightshow and is keen on lava lamps.
