Just wanted to pass this along, I downloaded the newest beta version of Google Earth this morning
and it is amazing.
A quick look Paris shows people standing in line at the Eiffel Tower, with vehicle images so clear you can probably identify the car model, certainly the vehicle type and color are easy to see.
I'm not promoting Google here, but since even the free version of Earth 4 is so good, I don't hesitate to let you know it is a vast improvement.
If you have broadband and a relatively fast PC, check it out at earth.google.com.
If you have the earlier version just download the new version and it will install automaticaly in the earlier version.
Let me know what you think of this.
And, of course, you will want to check out 38 degrees, 57' 06.64"N by
77 degrees, 08' 45.72" W.
Just don't try to drive there.
