    ok my final conclusion is this is the Playboy Mansion. It's the main thing in the center and looks like pretty much all the surrounding land and couple houses are theirs too. you can see the famous pool/grato almost dead center in the picture just east of the main house

    It's a little difficult to find, but Area 51 is kinda cool to look at with Google Earth.

    every time I see a GoogleEarth image it makes me think how cool it'd be to work for the government and have access to images with 1000x better resolution.... :grin:

    We use it to find addresses/houses. It is scary in a way and the fact that it is very low resolution compared to gov't shots is o more scary. There is just no where to hide anymore.;)
