Aerial of Canonsburg - July 3rd, 2010

Here is a satellite picture of Canonsburg captured from Google Earth.

It's hard to believe that this Google Earth picture was actually taken(snapped) on July 3rd, 2010 and timed midway during the Fourth of July Parade.

Canonsburg on the 4th of July, 2010
Using Google Earth, and zooming in, then panning Pike Street along the parade route shows a large crowd observing and indicates the parade is still in passing from Jefferson Avenue westward, 
A closer look showing the parade route along West Pike Street with the stadium included for orientation
If you further zoom in on the upper left corner you can see the marching formation of the CM Band.
 As expected, in contrast as you pan to the East from Jefferson Ave you begin to see a waning and disappearing crowd,  as well as no longer any sight of the infamous chairs. This picture and view is not included, for who is ever interested... "After the Parade Has Gone By" 


but Google Earth can be down loaded from: http://www.google.com/earth/download/ge/agree.html if you would like to see more.
