NearFest on Google Earth!
« on: April 26, 2015, 12:57:12 PM »
If you go to Google Earth and look at the Deerfield Fairgrounds, you will see the most recent photo was taken in October, 2014 during NEAR-Fest XVI! The resolution is such that I was able to find my camper and sale table... Though the date shows as Oct 9th, that is clearly incorrect as that was Thursday. Judging from the shadows and the number of people present, it looks to be taken sometime on the afternoon of Friday, Oct 10th, 2014.

Big Fun. Now NEAR-Fest is officially recorded in a permanent archive of the Earth.
