Have you found an interesting site on Google Earth? Why not post it here? Give the location so we can take a look too. The more exact the location, the better it can be found by others. You can give the address or Long/Lat.

Some locations are in very high resolution. Others are blurry, especially if they are rural or really out of the way. There are many layers you can add when you're looking, such as borders, roads, buildings, hotels.

You can download the program here: earth.google.com

Puzzle contest guidelines: If you want to post a Google Earth pic for the thread to guess, they allow reposting of screen shots but ask that attribution is made, so include the copyright and Google Earth logo, both are at the bottom of their pics. Also give the direction we're looking (I prefer north facing up), altitude of the view, when you will give the answer, general location (country, state, region, etc.) and a hint.
