That's awesome - too bad Google has it in low-res. If you can find a clear sattelite image of it, you could create an "image overlay" of it in Google Earth and then submit it to the file archive - that would look great!

Didn't they film a scene from the movie "Contact" (with Jodie Foster) here?

Yes, part of the movie takes place at arecibo.

It's a part of The SETI program, too.
