Satellite Imagery Oddities
Managed By: Icon Here Googly Earth Seekers
Description:
A category to waymark real-world oddities and other awesome looking sites that are seen on satellite imagery.
Expanded Description:
Satellite imagery has brought the world to the fingertips of computer users worldwide. Nowadays you don't have to be part of NASA to be able to see Earth from above. With programs like Google Earth and other satellite imagery sites, you can explore the planet from the comfort of your chair.
This category is for find those odd and interesting places around the world. Whether it's a mountain formation that can only be seen from above, or an oddly shaped lake, this category will accept them.
To make the category less subjective, we've added some requirements. They are:
1) The location must be visited and waymarked from the ground.
2) It must be something real (not waymarks based on bad image stitching)
3) It must be permanent (no waymarks of planes in the air or people sunbathing)
4) There must be a website documenting it (see acceptable website sources below.)

Some website to you can use as sources are: Google Sightseeing, Virtual Globetrotting (If you found seething you think should be included, but it doesn't have a website source, write a note in the private message. These waymarks will be decided on a case by case basis.) If you look at the satellite image and say, "That's cool", this is probably a good place for it.
