Google Earth is one of the most innovative tools that have been introduced to us in our generation in recent years. The amazing mapping and imaging technology Google has created allows us to explore the entire world all from the tips of our fingertips. We are able to explore otherwise unreachable areas of the globe, places we have always wanted to visit but may never get the opportunity to see. We can sleuth through neighborhoods to see what’s going on with our community. We can check water levels and ecosystems around the earth. We can even plan out escape routes if we ever decide to rob a bank using Google Earth. Well the thing is, we never really know when Google Earth cameras are snapping pictures so there is a heavy possibility of being caught doing something we would rather go unnoticed. Well the cameras don’t lie and they have provided some serious entertainment for our viewing pleasure. Take a look at these 27 crazy things that Google Earth has captured.

From all of the weird and unusual ones in Nevada to the possible murder scene, you can find just about anything on Google Earth. I wonder how many lost treasures or hidden places are still waiting to be discovered when there is probably a picture of them somewhere on Google Earth just waiting to be seen. Technology sure is amazing these days and I cannot wait to see what the future holds. It’s pretty crazy to think that these images were taken from little satellites orbiting the globe, high up in space.
Which one was the craziest to you?
