Goggle Earth

For those of you not "in the know", Google Earth is a typical Internet service which (like Mapquest) provides maps.  The cool feature is that for much of the world, it also provides a satellite photo of the area.  So you can (theoretically) see an overhead picture of many parts of the world.

Internet sleuths have found some Google Earth images which are pretty surprising.

For example, one guy in England tried to see his house, but caught an image of a rare World War II bomber flying directly over it.  The mystery plane was a historic and flightworthy Avro Lancaster bomber, one of only two left on Earth.

Then there’s the mysterious flying car, found in Australia.

And several UFOs.

And giant swear words in cornfields.

I have no point here — I just thought it was interesting….
