Oh, the places you'll go!

Golden Gate Bridge at Google Earth

If you could secretly look down upon the Earth from the heavens, imagine what you would see!

Well, you needn't imagine anymore. With Google Earth, you can now zoom in on your own backyard, take a snapshot and ... if you like ... post it at a Web site for cosmic voyeurs just like you!

Actually, Google Earth Hacks isn't a voyeur site (although it might have "certain" uses") but rather just a place where Google Earth buffs can post interesting "snapshots" from anywhere in the world you can zoom with your PC. You can find 15,367 cool snaps from various users, all in a searchable database, including the Bill Gates estate and the Hollywood sign from above. You'll also find a variety of 3D renderings based on Google Earth snaps. Sorta make you think twice about nude-sunbathing in your backyard, doesn't it?

So, now that you can, what are you going to look at from Heaven?
