    Open the link, click on 'Explore images'. It starts with a random image, and you can just keep looking at random images by clicking on the < and > functions. Or, find the 'Show Map' icon in the top centre, and see thousands of images from all over the world, all taken from a birdseye perspective. Drag and zoom with mouse to find specific locations.



    Not sure if I should embed images as the files are huge (but I will anyway to give you an idea), but links are easy with the 'share' function.

    And here we have it. This is the buoy, a wreck buoy that you see when you look out of Cork Harbour, to keep shipping away from it. The buoy is at the helm of the wreck.

    Went looking for a pic of one of my favourite places to have a birds-eye-view of, René-Levasseur Island, but unfortunately that particular resource doesn't have any images of it, so here's something similar...

    Manicouagan-EO.JPG

    It's the site of a 214,000,000 year old meteorite strike, in Quebec, Canada.

    What is the wreck?

    Possibly-The armed trawler HMT Clifton was minesweeping at the mouth of Cork Harbour on the 18th of February 1917,when she struck a mine. There was a massive explosion, and the ship disappeared in seconds. There was only one survivor, Sub-Lieutenant James G. Clemens, RNR.
    It might even be the 'Santo'
    Video of the dive on it here.
