Google Accidentally Photographs Military Drone Landing

Around the clock, satellites are snapping and re-snapping the Earth's surface from space. Also around the clock, weaponized killer drones are making the rounds—and it looks like the two just had a chance encounter.

The scene above shows one of the Air Force's MQ-9 Reaper drones preparing to touch down at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada, where UAVs are piloted both in the US and foreign warzones. The same warzones satellites like the one Google pays are watching right... now. Full circle, guys. [Google Maps via BuzzFeed]
