Google is your friend


As part of a rebranding effort, KFC Corp. worked with an event marketing company to have its 87,500-square-foot Colonel photographed from space by GeoEye's IKONOS satellite as it passed over the site.

Originally developed to serve more serious business and government purposes, the satellite imagery industry is eager to broaden its reach into more whimsical uses. GeoEye spokesman Mark Brender calls "astro-tising" or "astrovertising" projects like KFCs "a creative way to use space-based technology."

Its real. But the town took down the KFC rock formation a year or so ago.

Sucks. I drove to Rachel for Area 51 and KFC logo. I only got to tour the desert and not KFC.

During my desert tour, I found a sensor box camoflauged to look like a rock formation placed by the military. Check out this thread for photos:
