For those visiting or living here in Saskatchewan, it's not uncommon to see a great sunrise -- it's one of the reasons this province is known as the "Land of the Living Skies".


With the help of Google Earth now, I can find other exotic places to watch the same event -- like over Myan pyramids, or in California's Sierra Mountains.  Who knows, maybe one day we will be able to watch them in real time from anywhere on the planet!
