Re: Where are we? (GoogleEarth Quiz)

Just north of the white structure I mentioned (I'm assuming north is up), is that a monument?

Re: Where are we? (GoogleEarth Quiz)

@ pvsage, I havnt been there myself (although seen it from a distance), and the more zoomed in map must have been taken at a different time than this one as it shows earthworks in that location

@wuxmedia, it is all those things ... but not a national "park" as such
and it is a hospital for a specific kind of person

Re: Where are we? (GoogleEarth Quiz)

I'll go with Arlington Cemetery - but I don't think it's right by the river

Re: Where are we? (GoogleEarth Quiz)

not Arlington Cemetery
but it is a national cemetery (well national to the US that is), one of the oldest in fact dating back to 1827

At least you have a good baseball team.

So is that Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in the photo? I didn't realize it was that old.

Re: Where are we? (GoogleEarth Quiz)

Space observatories I think, but where? Northern Chile? Keck?
I am in the middle of cooking dinner so someone else has to look them up.

Observatories yes, Chile and Keck no. The seeing statistics make it the second best location for optical and infrared astronomy in the Northern Hemisphere.

It's the observatory on La Palma. Went for a holiday there a couple of years ago.

Beautiful and stunning scenery.
