If you haven’t used Google Maps before I suggest you take about 15 minutes and start playing. Enter your home address, work address, a place you would like to visit. You will be amazed at the technology and probably a little paranoid too. The detail that can be achieved is truly astounding and from the screen shots below you can see how creative the citizens of planet earth can be when they know Google is watching.
All of the images below are real and nothing has been altered or “photoshopped” to create the satellite photos you see. For the non-believers a link to the Google Maps page showing the image has been included so you can zoom in and zoom out to see the surrounding mapped area. If you know of any other satellite photos that should have been added please make a comment. If you wish to submit a list, please visit our submission page we are always looking for more ideas.
10. Colonel Sanders
A clever advertising ploy on a planetary scale. Do you wonder if aliens see this and think this is what we all look like? View the Colonel’s Google Map.
9. A doe, a deer, a female deer
A deer runs gracefully…upside down…through a meadow. See the deer in Google Maps.
8. Native American Head in Alberta Canada
7. The Pale Rider in Sutton Poyntz, UK
The Osmington White Horse, outside Sutton Poyntz, UK, is carved into the white chalk on the hillside. These horse-carved shapes are called “Leucippotomy”. Take a ride at Google Maps
6. See the Forest for the Trees
“LUECKE” is written in trees, literally. This was done by clearing trees while leaving strategic trees in the shape of the letters. This is actually viewable from space, so go for a closer look (see the size of the trees in relation) at Google Maps.
5. Follow the White Pink Rabbit
That is one helluva big Easter Bunny! You can find this bunny in Artesina, Italy. Supposedly this rabbit was knitted, not that you can see the yarn at this distance. Is he dead or sleeping, you be the judge. You can also see the rabbit at the artist’s site.
4. Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man
3. Coca Cola in Chile
2. The Belly Flop that Shook the World
That was one titan-sized belly flop that created that lake. See the real belly whopper in Google Maps.
1. The Real World Browser – Firefox in Portland
Crop circle art made in the shape of the Firefox Logo near Portland, Oregon. Firefox is my personal browser of choice and it appears the choice of our alien crop circle artists. See the truth at Google Maps
