    Even better go to http://earth.google.com/ and download the free program 
    to view EarthSat pictures of the earth. You need a broad band internet 
    connection to use it. Coverage is world wide and in some well 
    photographed areas you can zoom in and see your house. This is a 
    fantastic program.
