A new way to stalk people!
Bloggers ogle at Google Earth's topless sunbathers
But two of the computer program’s users got an extra surprise when they explored the Dutch city of the Hague - and spotted topless sunbathers.
A Dutch blogger looking for his favourite pub accidentally zeroed in on a man wearing just shorts, lying on the roof of a house by a canal.
A woman lying face down on a separate rooftop terrace was spied by an unknown browser who mentioned it on an online forum.
The sunbathers found their way on to Google Earth because they were catching a tan when the satellite used for mapping the planet was passing overhead.
Other bizarre sightings include "hovering cars" in Perth and missiles in the deserts of Iraq.
