    You can't see our house either, but I do have a better idea of how big the woods are where we live. I really wasn't sure.

    What''s really cool is it is world wide. I can look at places I lived all over the world. But the bad part is that it's just another tool for terrorist/bad guys to use. I can even make out where I lived in Iraq and it has handy grid coordinates.

    Ann Arbor is just a blur. It won't focus in on this area. Also, I wanted to get a closer look at Utah and Omaha beach, which you would think would be pretty clear, and it won't focus in there either. So it hasn't reached everywhere yet.

    But you can see the gazebo in the backyard and the red car in the driveway of my old house.

    Sounds alot like a program I have been running for a while now called world wind it is a NASA program that allows you to not only observe different terrains, but also see weather patterns.

    Also if anyone is interested there is also a similar program that is used for observation of space. It allows you to zoom in on planets, stars, meteors or I think even space craft. It can be a good tool also for ametuer astronmers as it runs in real time and you can see what the your night time sky looks like. Here it is celestia. Must add on here this program is not supported by NASA.

    My house isn't even built yet on Google Earth... My neighbors seem to be enjoying the construction equipment.

    I just zoomed in on Rickenbacker, and you can see exactly how the tankers are parked on the ramps. I haven't tried Springfield-Beckley yet to see if it shows the F-16's parked in their spaces. I could easily see this as a tool that could be used to do us harm. I know the pictures are dated, but at Rickenbacker our airplanes are still parked as you see them in the image.

    Piqua is largely a blur...which actually is rather accurate.

    This program is great.

    Incidentally, it appears that, at the time of photography, the Tulane University Baseball team was having B.P.

    Photo of my neighborhood is a couple of years old, but it has plenty of detail.

    This thing sure does use all the horsepower of my vintage PC, though.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
