Well, in spite of it being a busy week, I allowed myself ten minutes yesterday morning to search for Where on (Google) Earth #278, and I found it in southeast Australia. So now it’s my turn to put a screenshot of some location from Google Earth online, and it’s your job to figure out where it is, and what the geologic significance of the location is.
The Schott Rule is hereby invoked: You have to wait an hour for every past Wo(G)E that you have won before you post your answer — this gives newbies a “head start” on the search. Have fun!
I’ve positioned the screenshot in a non-traditional way, but note that north is still at the top!
You can click on it to make it bigger. Where is this place? Why should anyone care? Let’s hear from you in the comments section.
