The most awesome Google earth findings
How often have you checked your street on Google Earth? Too many to count, right! But, have you seen anything interesting or odd while you were “spying” yourself? If you haven’t so far, maybe you should check out these cool findings that Google Earth has spotted. Unfortunately, they are in the middle of nowhere, but if you want to become Google Earth famous, you can do something similar in your backyard or on the street in front of your house or building.
1 This giant human profile
Dubbed as the “Badlands Guardian” by locals, this geological marvel (Google Earth coordinates 50.010083,-110.113006) in Alberta, Canada, bears an uncanny resemblance to a human head wearing a full Native American headdress, and earphones, to boot. If you doubt in the way it was created, The Guardian was produced naturally.
2 This human figure lake in the middle of a Brazilian forest
A synthetic wonder that can be truly appreciated only from above; this giant man-shaped lake (-21.805149,-49.089977) is located near Bauru, Brazil.
3 The romantic island in Croatia
This heart-shaped island in the Adriatic became a hit on Google Earth for Valentine’s Day. The uninhabited island is only 130,000 square yards and is called Galesnjak. The owner didn’t even know how perfectly this island, off the Croatian coast was, until he was swamped with requests from couples to stay there.
4 The giant fingerprint
This fingerprint can be found in Hove Park, near Brighton and Hove in the United Kingdom. It measures 38 meters around. It probably belongs to a giant!
5 The first Google Earth alphabet
Rhett Dashwood is a graphic designer from Australia. Apparently, he thought that Google Earth lacked this sort of amusement so he created the first Google Maps alphabet, featuring all 26 letters, using satellite images of natural features and buildings.
6 The giant white lion
This is a giant white lion, at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo located at Whipsnade, near Dunstable in Bedfordshire, England. It resembles like Simba, do you agree?
7 The jet parked on a car parking behind buildings
Some of the sights you find in Google Earth are just plain mysterious. For example, why is a fighter jet parked (Google Earth coordinates 48.825183,2.1985795) in what looks to be a residential neighborhood lot near Paris? There can be many reasons, probably the pilot lives nearby…
8 Firefox in the middle of a field
In the early days of Firefox, a few devoted fans wanted to generate more PR for their beloved site and so gathered a team of people in Amity, Oregon, to recreate the Firefox logo in a field; their very own fox crop.
9 Huge Santa
Last year, one of the Google Earth Community members called ‘ear1grey’ posted an amazing discovery. He found a huge picture (57 kilometers long) of Santa. Wow, someone really tried hard. Great job.
10 And an iPod
So, here’s a giant Ipod Shuffle. Why not an iPod, after all these awesome things, right? It looks like a farmer’s field with a horse pen or something on it? Either that or a hard core apple fan and enthusiast. Unfortunately, it looks like he moved the pen on the map since it was first spotted.
11 Huge advertising of Coca Cola
Google Earth doesn’t have advertising, unless you consider the corporate logos and trademarks big enough to be seen from space. Check out this massive Coca-Cola logo (-18.529225,-70.25002) etched into a hillside of Chile with 70,000 Coke bottles. Now this is dedication to the favorite drink.
12 Oprah Winfrey’s face in a field
In case someone wasn’t familiar with Oprah, here is another way of making her face even more popular. The farmer from Arizona built a 10-acre homage to the talk show host (Google Earth coordinates 33.225488,-111.5955).
13 Blair don’t care
This was a way to “yell” to the world that Blair is free of any cares. We hope that people got Blair’s message now.
14 Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man
The famous Vitruvian Man (once created by Leonardo da Vinci) is just as impressive when created in the middle of the field.
