Hey I Can See My Home From Space (sort Of)

Mon Sep 23, 2002 10:57 am



Yup there it is! With help from
http://terraserver.homeadvisor.msn.com/ but it took me a while to find it. Its satellite imagery that shows that the entire US is under surveillance so if your home existed at around 1994 in the US it might be somewhere in that map!

If you go to mapquest.com, type in your address and click "aerial photo", it has a more recent and easer to see pic.

Cool man. My house wasn't a house yet; just an empty lot. It was built the next year. The field behind me was sold to a developer, so it will be all houses soon, but now serves as a driving-range  Big grin

Yeah, my house was also not there when the picture was taken. The lot where my house is now is marked by the red dot. Behind the court you can see the man-made lake in the devolpment as well as the cicular driveways on
some of the houses.

Also an intresting note on my above picture, the lots shown in the lighter grey color indicate a newly built house, where grass has not been planted yet. You can even pick out houses under construction with only rough framing.

That's awesome! I used to fly out of this little shithole airport.
(don't know how to post the pic so here's the link)
Oh, and it's KFES, Festus, MO, about 30 miles south of STL.

You can't see my house in this photo, at the time the lot I am on was pretty overgrown, it had been cleared about twenty years earlier. Three years ago we thinned out a lot of the trees that where there. You can see my dirveway though, it is the line that is in the middle of the photo that slopes slightly up from left to right. We had cleared out some of the trees along it about two years earlier to run the power line to the house.

You can also count three of my neighbors floatplaes on the lake that is on the other side of the road from me.

I tried searching for Area 51. Obviously there arent any pictures of it.
There is however a topographical map of the Area 51 site area.
I tracked it down and if I am not mistaken, A51 is supposely sitting on the west end of the dryed up "Groom Lake" In the Nevada Test Range vincinity.
There arent any roads leading up to it but some elevation stuff and county state borders.


Follow @kimbo_snaps on Instagram or bokimon- on Flickr to see more pics of me and my travels.

Oh yeah, http://www.globeexploreer.com has them in COLOR!

I had to download it and alter it because I could not get it to here straight, funny, this pix must have been taken a while ago since those new 'First Year experience' buildings are not there.... There are three long rectangular buildings at the lower right hand side, I'm in the 3 of 10 halls in ERAU-Prescott:
