Is coming nearer on the path.

Google the Newest Player In the Area 51 Conspiracy???

There's been a lot of buzz recently about Google's new satellite map function, but this is the best thing I've heard to date -- and Shar, you're going to love this: Google's coverage of Area 51, in Rachel Nevada, has been redacted: little green circles all over the photograph. And why do you suppose the circles are green, hmmmm? Egg-sact-ly.

If I was an Air Force administrator, I'd think seriously about doing this just for fun. The black helicopter crowd is going to have a field day with this!

Thanks to Matt for the tip.

While you're there, you might as well poke around. The resolution isn't fantastic, but if you live, well, pretty much anywhere I gather (assuming it's not too close to Area 51 or any other alien landing strip / warehouse facility / witness protection program), you should be able to discern your house.

GoogleOverPittsburgh. Can you find Moon's house?

Yay! I was hoping I'd get you to drop by, Shar! You should know, by now, I'm part of a true skeptic, which means I'm skeptical of all pat answers, whether they involve black helicopters and little green men or old white men in handmade suits with private jets. Always nice to see you around . . . :-)

actually, I'm all of a true skeptic, just to be clear.

I read you almost every day, but don't let it go to your head! ;-) You should be skeptical of everything, too many people just swallow what they're fed without question...

Oh my god, I think you can see my ugly truck from the satellite.
