Yes, I can, but it would be cheating as I've worked there. Finding it on GE is interesting, as it disappears at some zoom levels it's there, and some it isn't.

Yes, I've noticed similar glitches on GE, and not only on this particular view.

I worked at this earth station for over two years, on & off. I worked for ESA in The Netherlands and spent more time here than there for a few years. Setting up and executing the OTS-1 satellite in-orbit testing.

I could write a book about the area - both experiences and adventures! Here's but one here
That article also has a link to another, when I was in an earthquake there. A dangerous place!
