Google Maps/Earth

Hey, I don't know if this has been covered here or not, but it looks like within the past few weeks Google has made another SAT pass over Area 51. I noticed that you could always zoom into level 2 (about 100ft resolution) in and around the actual base; however, around the guard shack, campfire hill, groom lake road, bald mountain, the front gate warning signs, etc, the closest was somewhere around level 5 (about 2000ft resolution).

Anyway, it's really sweet because now I can really see things like the guard shack and back gates at a descent resolution--you can now follow Groom Lake Road all the way to the base.

Has anyone else noticed this, or am I just making this up?
