The sky is pink

I use Google Maps a lot, not just for getting directions and such, but for geographic reconnaissance. For example, I once found Penn Jillette's house outside of Vegas with just a general area and a picture of his house. I used to be in the military and based on my love of geography and maps, if I had to do it all over again, I might have chosen to become a military aerial photography analyst.

I spy some very interesting man-made geographic formations all over the place and now thanks to this little movie by Josh Fox (the creator of the documentary Gasland), my suspicions are confirmed. I know what fracking wells look like from space. There's lots of them.

Go watch the movie.
