Don't forget to close the window shades

I started playing with maps.google.com last night. Not only maps, but clicking the Satellite button gives you a birds' eye view of things.

Living in a rural area, I simply can't enter my home address -- it is RR 1, Box xxxx, city,PA zip -- so I had to use two cross streets to find my house. Ignore Google's red arrow, and look for the mouse pointer:

Not bad, but I can see how some may feel creepy about this level of detail.

Update I should point out: the area isn't as barren as it appears. All things green are rendedered in that brown shade. For additional Google fun, zoom in close on the Moon's surface.
