      Google is an amazing company. One of their accomplishments is Google Earth. For the uninitiated, Google Earth allows you to view any area of the world and zoom in so far that you can almost see people. If you stop to think about this it is really an incredible accomplishment.

      Certainly spy agencies around the world have used similar software for years and without a doubt their satellite resolution is likely as great as to be able to see people’s eye color.


      Having said that, we, as the general public, have access to something that is very powerful indeed; I have been able to find my house.

      • is a 3D program so if you have an older computer you might have difficulties with it. You’ll be able to see Mt.

If you want to experience a sunset in Maui, without the expense and bother of actually going there and getting sand all over the place, Google Earth will allow that.

        Also included with the Google

        Earth download is Google Sky. This allows you to see the sun, planets and stars. You can see constellations and images from the Hubble telescope. I am not an astronomer nor have I been a star gazer, I never found the idea of laying on my back on a hill in the middle of nowhere appealing and often I would lay in dog droppings, but this is a cool thing.

        Go ahead and download Google Earth and experience the world and more.
