What a cool site, Jackie. Thank you for posting it! I sent it on to some science teachers and to my father-in-law who used to design space suits. He loves things about space and planets.

Hi Jackie

As I am typing this note, my husband is looking at the great site that you posted. All I keep hearing are comments like:

Wow - "It looks like two colliding"... then again "Wow. "Carol come look at this one"... and " "Did you see this one"... "Big Areas in South America". "Wow"

Just wanted you to know ... You made a hit with Jim. He really loves anything to do with Airplanes and space.

(Secret: His Christmas present from me is a Telescope.. and you can use a digital camera with it.)

Another neat site... GoogleEarth. Download, then type in any address in the box in the upper left portion of your screen, watch and see what happens. What concerns me is that the terrorists also have access to this site!! You'll note though, if you focus in on Washington, D.C., the buildings are somewhat blanked out (for lack of a better term).
Have fun with this site!!

That is really fun!

I love the way it travels with new addresses put in! We could even see our tenant's car behind our home, but opps, no Casita---I went and checked out the window

I forgot to mention...the photos are at least one year old. My neighbor cut down a very large tree summer before last. It was there when I checked out my address recently.

Something to also try with GoogleEarth. Use your mouse to create different views of what you are looking at. Press and hold the scroll button and see what happens. Press and hold the left mouse button and see what happens.. It's incredible how satellite photos taken directly overhead can, on this website, be converted to topographical images!!

Oh, I forgot to mention also... maybe Google Earth could be used to evaluate potential campgrounds before you leave the house??

Ron,
I used the tilt, etc. tools at the bottom---really fun. We live 1/2 block from the ocean and it was fun see it from several views. Also, I just followed the map down Baja---thanks again. Now, back to my

It is fun to move around and then see where you end up!
