Bikini: new Google Earth beta

The resolution of the new pictures is amazing.

Have a look at the attached waypoint file from my trip last year.

To the west of the marks in the lagoon you can see oil slicks coming off the USS Saratoga and the HIJMS Nagato.

Hi AB

Yeah the new resolution is amazing. :) You got me thinking, check out the Dive Boats sitting out side Blue Lagoon Dive Shop in Chuuk.:D

Cheers

I think this is the wreck of the Prinz Eugen at Kwajalein Atoll - it was towed there after surviving the A-bomb test at Bikini and sank in Dec 1946.
