I always feel like somebody's watching me

Take that, Google Earth! See ya, Microsoft Virtual Earth! I think this web toy of sorts is much cooler -- it lets you view the earth from pretty much any satellite of your choosing (that's this morning's view from ECHOSTAR 8 at left). The satellite thing isn't your speed? The same website also lets you check out the planet from the vantage point of the Sun, the Moon, the night side of the Earth, "above any location on the planet specified by latitude, longitude and altitude," or above various cities around the globe.

Okay, now the whole "total surveillance thing" is starting to freak me out a little.
