Seven years ago, Frank Taylor made a cool pumpkin overlay for Google Earth. It’s still a fun toy to play with, so we’re showing it off again. To make it work, simply download the KML here and that’s it!
For maximum benefit, turn off the atmosphere (“View -> Atmosphere”) and the “Borders & Labels” (found in the “Layers” on the left side of your Google Earth window).
The pumpkin was created using a simple image overlay that he wrapped around the globe, then added a 3D model for the stem. You can read details on how that’s done in this post of his from a few years ago.
