Worldwide map of private observatories

Jato (over cloudy-nights way) started a "Frapper" group for private observatories. Basically, it's a bulletin-board-type thing that allows folks to put push-pins in a worldwide map along with a pic and some text. You can zoom in an out, pan around, and display either a map or a satellite picture. Pretty neat, actually.

Anyway, see: http://www.risingconcepts.com/frapper/observatories.
