I know a guy in Germany, and he told me that last week, he could tell that my hedge had been gone from looking at a real-time satellite camera. Are there any services like this that people know of? He was right, we had it removed to make way for a fence, but google maps is still using a picture from a few years ago.

rofl I played a similar trick on a guy on MSN, I said I hacked into a NASA satellite and I can see what everyone is doing. It was a 3 man convo, first guy (Call him "AS") second guy (called him "TE") and me. Me and TE was messing around with AS, and I said I am spying on TE with one of my NASA satellites and collaborated and got all out acts together. I told TE in a second MSN window to pretend he is going to brb, while I said I am watching TE tripping over TV cords, talking to his dad, eating a pepperoni pizza etc to AS. AS wasnt really smart, and he believed everything I said, and yeah... it was funny.




Anyway, back on topic. No such thing...

@OP This is pretty cool, but I doubt it is true. Maybe he asked someone who lives near you? Why don't you ask the guy how he could tell?

The guy already lied and said he saw it from a real-time satellite image.

It's possible if they work for certain organizations or the Government who have access to aerial photography satellites but highly unlikely.

Do you have CCTV near you? Some cameras are broadcast to the net for people to see which is quite cool.

If you watch 24 you know Real-Time satellite is no such thing, though there is somewhat satellites that can give you capture of the location every couple of minutes.
