There have been some celebs that are fighting Google Earth as to pics of their homes on understandable issues of personal security and privacy. As to military facilities and equipment, governments can step in and have such photos removed due to well established security laws.

In the photo on the original post, does it indicate Tower of London at Buckingham Palace? I could have sworn that was a part of Windsor Castle.

The Tower of London is actually a sepreate building in its own right, standing on the banks of the River Thames in the centre of London. Built by William the Conqueror in 1078, Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress (better known as the Tower of London) has been home to the Crown Jewels since 1303. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tower_of_london

Buckingham Palace stands some 2.8 miles from the Tower, further in towards the centre of the city, and Windsor Castle is in the town of Windsor, Berkshire, near to LHR.

Hope this helps, Jamincan!

Boo hoo, I think you pretty much give up your privacy when you decide to become an attention whore. A snapshot of your house from space isn't exactly showing you shagging the pool boy.
