Earth’s Largest Halloween Decoration

Pumpkin Google EarthThis weekend will see a lot of halloween parties, and I was thinking yesterday at lunch about what kind of Google Earth fun I could make of it. Suddenly I had it…maybe I could find some halloween decoration for Google Earth. A couple hours later, here is the result . This is the largest halloween decoration on Earth! Enjoy the treat…or is it a trick?
(By the way, I used SketchUp for the green part on top. I recommend turning off the “Atmosphere” for a better effect. Also, check underneath for credits. To return to your regular scheduled satellite photos, simply turn off the Pumpkinearth placemark folder.)
