Earth Eye

Google has now got their satellite and map system on line.

You can type in a place and then click satellite in the upper right,

and it comes right up.

I've already looked at my place of birth,

where I live now,

where I go in Mexico,

and at Falluja.

Couple this with the satellite site here

and the World is at your finger tips.


If you must watch something that moves,

This is much better than the cracker jack crap

that appears on the weekly Sunday Morning propaganda parade .

And if you grow tired of looking down.

Look up.

Tonight you can look to the west at sunset and see

Venus, Saturn, and Mercury bunched up.

Jupiter is overhead.

The moon is almost at your feet.

The earth is turning into its shadow.

It provides you a perfect viewing perch to see half the universe.

Each night.

Kind of thoughtful actually.
