Curious images in Google Earth
 
Google Earth is a free program that makes possible to visit all the planet with our computer. We can navigate and travel from a place to another and get closer at any point of the earth until getting to perceive impressive details. We will be able to see houses, the color of cars, and even the shadows of people and street signs and the degree of resolution may be different from place to place.

All this happens thanks to the superimposition of images obtained from satellites which are combined with maps. If you still don't have this potent tool, it can be downloaded from here.

We should say that some areas of the globe are not totally covered, but the more important cities and places have good resolution. United States is the most covered country nowadays and In the future the photographic database will be enlarge so that the whole planet will be seen in great definition.

Because the program uses streaming technology it is necessary to be connected to the Internet to use it.

Many curious and strange images have been discovered with Google Earth. Inside the vast collection of amazing photos we made this selection with the most impressive ones.

To observe the places with more deteils we provide the coordinates of each place (you only have to copy them inside Google Earth in the option " go to " and you will access to the destination rapidly).
