  • Interesting. By using Google Earth images, researchers observed that cows tend to be pointing north when they are grazing or at rest.

    One time I was hiking northbound on the Appalachian Trail when I saw a black animal up ahead. I whipped out my camera, took a bunch of pictures thinking it was a bear.

    Nope… it was a cow…in the middle of woods. Now that I think back on the incident, that cow was indeed pointing northbound!🙂

    Hey Vicky,

    Funny that you posted that because I sent an email yesterday to a bunch of folks about that report. Pretty funny and awesome that it was discovered with a web tool!

    Hope all is well for you!

    Yeah, Google Earth is getting around. It has made more than a few appearances in Discover Magazine the past year.

    One appearance right off the top of my head— Google Earth being used to try to find evidence of comet impacts:
