Google Maps Has Taken Many Images Of Earth, But Sometimes They Caught Things They Didn't Expect.

Google Earth has been a dream for us wannabe travelers stuck in our cubicles. Not only can you immediately satisfy your curiosity about what your childhood home looks like now or what Disneyland looks like from space (pretty cool, actually), but you can get a perfect birds-eye view of some of the earth's greatest spectacles meant to be viewed from above. This tendency has its roots in ancient civilizations when it was thought that aerial perspective art was the best way to show your hard work and dedication to the gods. Ready? Let's go on a world adventure.
