At last!! The school can be seen from Google Earth! And the image is only a few weeks old!
For several years the Google Earth satellite photos of the area around The Lion of Judah Academy have been so outdated that there was no evidence the school was even there when you looked them. But all that has changed!
Not only is the school easily seen on the newly updated photos, but also the resolution is MUCH higher quality, and things can be seen in considerable detail.
This is going to be very helpful in many ways to us in the future. But for now, it’s going to allow those of you who’ve never been there to get a much better idea of what the school looks like. A photo of the main part of the campus, with identifying labels, is posted below.
Not sure what Google Earth is? It’s a program which allows you to view satellite images from all over the world. You can download it to your own computer, and it can be a LOT of fun. Here’s a link to find out more about it, as well as download the program so you can use it on your own computer:
While we can — and will — post photos and information from Google Earth here and on the website, in order to actually explore the area, zoom and in zoom out, and all of that neat stuff, you will actually have to install Google Earth on your computer. It’s safe and easy, and the website above will help you, if you are interested.
This satellite photo was taken only a few weeks ago, so what you see is very much the way the school looks today! Click on it and it will enlarge.
Now, installing Google Earth on your computer will help you see this image, and work with it, and explore all around. However, finding the school may not be the easiest thing in the world…especially if you’ve never been there!!
I have a placemark set to the school, but I’ve not yet found a way to attach that placemark here. So if you like just send me an email and I’ll send that placemark to you by return email.
Also, the coordinates for the campus are:
2 degrees 22 minutes 41.17 seconds south latitude
33 degrees 33 minutes 30.20 seconds east longitude.
