Viewing the sunrise with Google Earth and Discovery

Google earth has steadly added features to its base application during the last months. The lates addition to this dynamic software application is the ability to watch the sun rising on different parts of the planet.

The images are provided by Discory, with footage from several places on earth. It is possible to see the sun rising at almost any time of the day, by following the path of the sun around the planet.

It is interesting as the technology is truly helping everyone to become more acquaited with our planet. What in the past was huge and isolated now can be explored with a few simple clicks of the mouse.

With Google Earth, Google is revolutionizing the access to geographical data in the same way that it revolutionized access to the web. And, since it is all for free, I can only say thanks.
