I'm not passionately interested but I'm a believer that we're most certainly not alone. I tend to take most UFO stories with a pinch of salt but think some are genuine. I also think that if the government take the trouble to disclaim a story then it's mostly likely true! What caught my eye on this sight were the amazing photos. Quite extraordinary some of them.

I love any kind of aerial photography and have been trying to download Google's new offering www.earth.google.com but haven't been having much luck. It only seems to be available for download at certain times and it's a matter of luck when you try. I think I've got all the necessary requirements except maybe not the 3D graphics card. Oh well, I'll keep trying.

See ya! :D

download Google's new offering www.earth.google.com


Funnily enough I downloaded it yesterday, having beem given a link from another forum.

It's good, and for certain areas the detail is superb, but I cannot get it clear for all areas.

Yeah, me too. I finally managed yesterday to download it which took forever but I still can't get into it! The silly thing gave me earth google plus which costs 20$ and which I didn't ask for (I asked for the freebie version) so obviously it doesn't work cos I haven't paid my 20$! Dah! :roll:

So now I'll have to uninstall/deinstall it and try again. Grrr! I will not be beaten - I want to see all these amazing photos everyone keeps telling me about. There's no "green with envy" smiley but if there was one, it'd stick it here.

If at first you don't succeed, ...

See ya! :D
