Hmm.  Funny how there's NO CARS in the parking lot!

Oh, yeah, we've got him now.

Here's Goddard Space Flight Center:

On the left is the historical town of Greenbelt, Maryland, one of the first "Created" cities -- Roosevelt had it created during the depression.

The green field in the middle belongs to Eleanor Roosevelt High School, a 'Magnet' school for Prince Georges county.  And on the center-right is the campus of Goddard.

Goddard serves as the communication nexus for Nasa.  Also, there are satellite construction and test facilities on campus.  And it's surrounded by trees, AND it has quite a herd of deer.

Hey, this is kind of fun.

I think Leeds looks prettier from the air than Atlanta does.

OK, I messed up the earlier link.  This one might work.

Personally I think you guys could do with a few more roundabouts!

I thought the circles were something to do with irrigation, but they seem to big for that. Does someone know why the circular patterns?

Leeds seems very green, so I am thinking cool weather and probably near water.

Hey X, that area of Brooklyn actually looks pretty nice.

Leeds isn't that green. Well im about 6 miles from the city center so I suppose it is, but this is the more industrial side of the city!

We love green in the UK

Yes we do love green. Every time I visit home I am blown away by how green everything looks.

There are some nice brown high rises as well

Probably better than grey concrete high rises. But even the most beautiful bodies have armpits.

Little boxes on the hillside... Little boxes made of ticky-tacky...

I believe the 'circles' come from long irrigation machines.  They 'pin' them in the middle of the field, then the far end rides on several tires as the whole thing rotates. 

The machine itself is basically a pipe 10' in the air with a bunch of sprayers on the bottom and a set of wheels every so often.  This lets the farmer spray with water, pesticides, liquid fertilizers, all without having to actually drive something over the area of the field.

It does mean the 'corners' of the field remain un-used -- I'll leave it as an exercise for the student as to what percentage of the field that is.
