From Space... (part 2)

After Google Maps was released I, along with thousands of other people, have found all kinds of interesting landmarks, geographical formations, oddities (the White House with a blank roof) and more. Google has made sightseeing an armchair activity!

Here is a rather extensive list of some views from space. Feel free to add more via the comments link at the bottom or by e-mailing me at ewen dot blog at gmail dot com and I'll add them to the list as they come in.

One that I can't seem to find is a view from space of the Ghost Ships, which seem to be blacked out in the satellite images of the location. Any help would be much appreciated.
