A Mysterious Patch Of Light

A Mysterious Patch Of Light | What's New on the 33 Topics I Follow? | Scoop.it

Use google earth and you can compare the two images.

that's an excellent idea, especially to have students suggest what the light might be in the photo. The question is , is the bright light a one time occurrence or does it continue?J

I'm having trouble installing GoogleEarth on my iMac. Looking forward to the comparison. Big adjustment after years in the PC world.
