    Default Hebrew letters formed in Samarian Hills

    There appear to be numerous Hebrew letters formed in the hills of Beit El in Samaria Israel -

    32°16'55.33"N
    35°29'19.58"E

    Interesting.

    Best regards,

    Hi jsherri, and welcome to Google Earth Hacks!!

    Unfortunately your Lat/Long does not point to anything interesting. My placemark points to your coordinates.

    Have another go!!

    Hi,
    Thanks for the welcome. I will be getting to the Hebrew letters, but in the interim, have found something also interesting in another range. I think I've gotten the file issue down to pat.

    Hmmmm. Not quite. If I open your .kml nothing happens. If I zoom right out until the earth is small and then click your polygon, I'm pointed to somewhere in deep space!

    Argh.

    Can someone please walk me through how to do this?

    It seems too important to pass up because of me not getting how to do this...

    OK:

    1. Get up your ‘find’ in GE exactly as you want us to see it.
    2. Click Add / Placemark
    3. Type a title, perhaps a description, perhaps drag the placemark to a more appropriate position, perhaps click the yellow-pin icon and choose a more appropriate one.
    4. Click OK.
    5. Do File / Save / Save Place As. Click Save and your placemark is on your hard disk.
    6. Come here and ‘Post Reply’.
    7. Type your message.
    8. In ‘Additional Options’ click ‘Manage Attachments’.
    9. In the pop-up window click ‘Browse’ and navigate to your saved placemark; click ‘Open’.
    10. Click ‘Upload’ and close the pop-up.
    11. Click ‘Submit Reply’.


    Good luck!

    Fair enough - even though it is mentioned elsewhere in this forum, you asked nicely.

    1 - In Google Earth, go to the place you want to show off to others.
    2 - Zoom in as needed.
    3 - If needed, adjust the viewing angle.

    At this time you should have everything the way you like it and the way you want others to see it.

    4 - Click the menu item named "Add", and choose "Placemark" from the resulting drop down menu. (Or - Ctrl-Shift-P; or click the thumbtack looking icon in the GEarth menu bar.)
    5 - A pop-up window appears. Type something descriptive to replace the default "Untitled Placemark" field.

    There's a lot more you can do in this window - go ahead and type some text into the big description box.

    6 - Click "OK" at the bottom of the pop-up window.
    7 - On the screen, you will see a thumbtack with the name you gave it in step 5 above. Right click the thumbtack and choose "Save Place As" from the pop-out menu.
    8 - Accept the default file name and save it on your hard drive.

    Here's where it gets important:

    9 - Close Google Earth, tell it "No" if it asks you if you want to move saved items from your temporary to your permanent My Places.
    10 - Find the file you just saved and double click on it.

    Now you have tested your file before uploading. If you can see what you want to share with others, attach it to a post and let us look.

    If you can't see what you were expecting, you did something unexpected in one of the steps above. So start over at step 1 above.

    I think I like Tom's post better.

    Just be sure to perform my steps 9 and 10 after his step 5.

    Hi,

    Long time no see you guys. I did finally manage to get the hang of this thing and in searching for the letters managed to find this *sting ray* in the Samarian hills - hope this gets to you ok. Am now going back to find the letters.
