Photo Discovered of New Planet Called Maple Dale Middle School

Maple Dale Middle School looks like a whole other planet with the help of Google. See what happens when you put your own address in.

OK, so it’s not really a new planet, even though middle school does seem to be a whole other world...BUT that is for another story.  What it really is, is Stereographic Street View!  A version of Google’s Street View that turns an address into what visually looks like a planet.  I found this super cool and very fun site from Photojojo, an online, DIY photography blog.

This first photo is of Maple Dale School, which is cool with the telephone pole, wires and all the trees.  But take a look at how great a nearby park looks and even cooler, downtown Chicago.  

Click here to be directed to Photojojo’s blog or here to go directly to Stereographic Street View*.  Be warned, once you start putting addresses in to see what your house looks like as a planet, you will become addicted. It’s fun! Try it out!

* I've found this site works best on Google Chrome.
