The World's Strangest Sights on Google Earth


PC World has produced a huge list of the strangest sights to be found on Google Earth. Anyone who is a regular Google Earth user will be aware of a lot of these already but you will definitely find some you have never seen before in this exhaustive collection. The high resolution image of the elephants pictured here is a find I had never come across before.

The collection seems to have been compiled from submissions to the Google Earth Community but it was a good idea to put them all together in one KML. The collection is organised into a number of categories:

Only from the sky
Caught in the act
Hugh and unique
Hi res
Airplanes in flight ... and many more
