    That's a scary thought of someone being able to zoom in on you while you're walking your dog down the street lol.

    Think of it this way, there are satellites orbiting the earth and all they do it take pictures. Where I use to work about 7 years ago, we were looking at purchasing about 1/2 the US in Satellite Photos and I talked to some people there that said they could read the words on your watch if they needed to. The photos that are taken are only taken as the satellite passes overhead. Alot of them are not the most current and updated but, it is still cool. The accuracy of most of the photos in there is between 5 & 3 meters. 6 years ago the company that I talked to was selling 1 meter pics as long as you had the clearance and money. No I would love to see some of the photos that are coming off of the satellites flying over our heads. As far as people watching what you are doing in real time, that is restricted to the government and specific agencies as they are the only ones that can change the orbit of a satellite to watch ya. I hate to say it but, it is out there and if they, Government & Agencies, want to watch ya they can anywhere in the world.

    Think about it, I don't know exactly what they are but, the govt has them censored.
    Now that Area 51 is so well known they had to move operations.

    go to Flashearth.com
    you can switch between google, microsoft, yahoo, ask.com, openlayers, and NASA terra maps.
    Yahoo gets you in the closest to the weird circles.
    They seem to change from each....

    Weird stuff

    from the top left circles that are just north of area 51 go due west five miles over a mountain. What the crap is that triangle thing?

    I also found a bunch more circles to the west of the original circles.
    Maybe they are some kind of farming on the base, I dunno

    That area is the one of the largest piece of land that the US Govt. owns, if not the largest. Those areas are possibly blurred to obscure the view so that we do not know what is there.
