Now here is a cool byproduct of having hundreds (or thousands) of satellites orbiting the earth.

Made possible by Time Magazine and Google, the website below allows anyone to  zoom in on Landsat images (which look like the images you would see on Google Earth), and use a scroll bar to advance through time.

An example image from the site, showing an aerial view of the comparatively-undeveloped Austin in 1984.

This allows you to see how your town, neighborhood, or anywhere on the globe has changed and developed since the images began in 1984.

Have fun exploring!
