It's one of these, but I'm not up to searching through all of them....

University of Montana, Missoula. Nice rotation to get the "M" upright.

Give me a little while to get another site going; didn't think I'd actually guess one!

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>



I assumed (correctly, luckily) that it was a US carrier. My first guess was to go look at the Hawaii bases given Rob's background, I then looked at west coast bases (SanDiego, Everett...nada...) so I went to east coast, Norfolk, dry docks in Conn. & Mass, still nothing that matched the landmarks. I was still ignoring the ship itself and just looking for the correct naval base. I found a list of international bases. I knew the sat. coverage for Guam was terrible thanks to Nick's volcano challenge so I ruled that out right away and went to Japan. Yokokuma was the first one I checked. No high res imagery though....the image came from somewhere other than Google probably but the landmarks matched so I just did some research on which carriers were stationned there. I quickly learned alot about the kitty Hawk and the previous carrier stationed there, (USS Independence I think...) and that was going to be my next guess if for some reason it was a trick question and the photo was older than 1998.

How did you find my rotated Kamchatka volcano so quick?

The tell-tale purpleish relfectance led me to the Aluetians. There aren't many volcanoes in Google Earth that have that purdy purple tint and I knew from flying around that most all of them are in the Alaska/Russia area. Then it was just a matter of minuites until I found the one with the volcanic lake.

You missed the mountain! No biggee. It is called Mt Sentinel, and it's located in my home town (Missoula, MT).
