GoogleSky is in the works; interestingly, Sam Roweis seems to be involved (he previously contributed to the Astrometry.net project; have the efforts merged?).

Update: Kevin Knuth wrote in to clarify that while Sam Roweis is doing a sabbatical at Google, he is not involved with GoogleSky. What he was showing was actually Astrometry.net. Kevin updated his post accordingly, and so did I:

Kevin Knuth: "Astrometry.net is poised to revolutionize astronomy by making any and all images of the night sky taken over time accessible to astronomers and those who perform data analysis or data mining on astronomical images. This includes images ranging from those taken by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) to those taken by a tourist who happened to catch a portion of the night sky in their photograph."

"Astrometry.net can take ANY image of the night sky and identify the image with respect to the precise astronomical coordinates. Astrometry.net is so good, Roweis explained, that they will not need to rely on any information from the photographer [...]"
