Google satellite imagery

Have you looked at Google Maps satellite view recently? In urban areas they had 3D renderings of buildings available for a few years but it was very artificial-looking. Now if you pan around then you can see buildings rendered in pretty good 3D with perspective. I'm impressed.

With some of my physics classes, the younger ones, when we did the astronomy section, and that included artificial satellites, I told them about and showed the resolution of images available using Google Earth of the school. To prove it I asked for a volunteer (gullible) to go outside and said we'd watch them do star-jumps using GE. Oh what larks Pip!
