Dinosaurs Walk the Google Earth
In this satellite photo, you can clearly see the above-view, and especially the distinctive shadows, of a Brontosaurus and a T-Rex walking along in the backyard of a manufacturing plant in Alpha, New Jersey. It turns out someone found these in Google Earth last July. GoogleSightseeing wrote a blog entry about the dinosaurs a couple of days ago, and found out more information. For one thing, there is also a cave man between and slightly to the north of the two dinosaurs. And, there's a triceratops on the premises as well, which someone who commented on the story found. Check the dinosaurs out in Google Earth here , and here's a link to Google Maps to the area.
According to GoogleSightseeing's post, these dinosaurs were built by Woody Hauser who works at the G J Oliver Company which manufactures and designs lube oil systems, and fabricates steel for industrial use. In his spare time, Woody designs and builds dinosaurs out of steel. Here are some ground-level photos of the dinosaurs.
By the way, here are some other dinosaurs found near the McDonnell Planetarium in St. Louis. I was just visiting this excellent planetarium a couple of weeks ago, and highly recommend it. The guy who runs the planetarium, Gregg Maryniak, formerly ran the Ansari X-Prize project when Burt Rutan won the $10 Milion prize with Space Ship One. You can see a life-sized model of Space Ship One in the lobby, and many other awesome space and aviation related exhibits. The planetarium is part of the excellent St. Louis Science Center. Digg it!
