Correct about the GGB. And correct about Cape Canaveral. It's a launch pad at the Kennedy Space Center.

Here's a tougher one, object of interest is at the upper left:

Wrigley Field and Mississippi River Delta are correct.

I tried to find an image on the web from the movie The Truman Show, the one of the structure from outer space, but I couldn't find one. I figured that would be a real stumper since it's fictional. I'm staying with images of structures large enough to be seen from space.

About saving images, you have to have a place on the web to upload them to. There are some free sites around the web for this, but I'm not familiar with them because I upload them to my own website. Asgara knows of a couple, I think.

ImageShack and Photobucket are two hosting sites that I have used.

When you find the map image you wish to save, hit alt / print screen together. This copies the window onto your clipboard. Then paste the image into a photo edit program or Paint. You can crop it how ever you want. Save it and host with one of the sites I listed above. Copy the plain link they give you and use the thumbnail function here...

The half-finished building housing McDonald's new corporate headquarters :)

I know it's an old one but I couldn't resist!

I guess mine were too hard. The first was the Althing (world's oldest functioning parliament) in Reykjavík, Iceland.

The second is Rest Area 54, I-98 near Black River Falls, Wisconsin.

Well, the thing I wanted to put a pic up of wasn't really visible. Anyone know how to find out when the sat images were taken, seems to be pretty dated. Plus, did anyone find any pictures showing different seasons like this one (of the are where I live):
