Colin is here



Colin is spending the summer and next year in Santiago, Chile. I pulled up a recent TERRA image of Chile & surrounding areas:

If you have a computer with a lot of memory and a great Internet connection, try this one: http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/realtime/single.php?2005175/crefl1_143.A2005175145500-2005175150000.250m.jpg

These images were taken on 06/24/05 at 14:55 UTC, about three days ago.

As usual, wikipedia has a link to great canonical satellite image of the city: http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/sseop/images/city/lowres/ISS004/ISS004-E-6990.JPG

A really high-res image of part of the city is here: http://www.landinfo.com/GalSatIkonosSantiago.htm

"Colin is spending the summer and next year in Santiago, Chile."

Not to be pedantic, but Colin is actually spending the winter in Santiago.

That is quite pedantic. He is spending MY summer in Santiago.

And don't forget the Google Maps satellite image.

Work is immediately north of the big park and stadium just west of the center of the image. Home is about 1km north of the smaller stadium just east of the center of the image.

Colin, the google maps pic showed the wrong Santiago. Santiago de Compostela lies in Spain =)
