Google has recently added imagery of Istria to its Google Earth service.
While previously only *one* strip on the west coast was available, there is
now a second strip to the east, including e.g. Visnjan, Tican and of course also the region where we made our excursion during VSA2006 (the
tumulus/hill where nobody was since the Romans) Wink

If there is still someone who has not yet installed Google Earth (Laughing),
the client is available here:
http://earth.google.com/

Or if you prefer to use just a lousy version in your browser,
then click here:
It is centered on Tican.

As you can see, the images are pretty fresh. The "new observatory" (=stone circle) can already be seen. The epoch of that images is said to be 2006-06-24. That means, 2 days after AstroFest2006! With a little bit of imagination, you can still see the hundreds of empty plastic cups Laughing

Ciao,
Reiner
