edit: I'll put tis here because it has to do with Maroa anyway.
When I seen the dome beside the earthquake it didn't have a name on Google Earth so I went through the Smithsonian List for Moroa, and ended up
creating a KMZ file of all (most) of the domes in the area.
A lot of the locations on Smithsonian were a bit off, so I fixed that by making my GE go max 3D so I could see the domes properly.
I also created 3 new Google Earth icons while I was at it, as I couldn't find any decent ones
heres the KMZ file for Maroa
