Sorry, but you can't find penguins on Google Earth. Reasons are that either the penguins are too small for the satellites to capture, or Google engineers erased them out while… in the process of making Google earth. But if I am wrong, try Antarctica. Answer #2 Google Street View cameras have recently mapped a minuscule patch of land in Antarctica that is inhabited by penguins and this imagery is now live on Google Maps (and Google Earth) for all to explore. See related links to see the penguins.

While it's possible to photograph a tornado don't think one has been captured in Google Earth satellite or aerial imagery. What you can see is the near real-time weather overl…ays for an area during a tornado. There are historical paths of tornadoes that can be seen in Google Earth. What is more readily available is imagery showing the aftermath of a tornado. On May 4th 2007 the town of Greensburg, Kansas was devastated by a tornado and most of the town was destroyed. Shortly after the devastation, one of Google's satellite providers, DigitalGlobe , jumped into action and gathered imagery of the region for search-and-rescue teams and made it available to Google Earth.

First select the Shipwrecks layer under Ocean in Google Earth in the Layers panel. This layer will shows icon for shipwrecks around the world including the R MS Titanic wit…h details about the ship, when/why it was sunk, often with video clips, etc. Now visit the location where the titanic sunk which is in the North Atlantic ocean approximately 2,000 km east of New York City and 600 km southeast of Newfoundland. Next double click on the shipwreck icon labeled ' RMS Titanic ' to jump there. If you want to see a 3-D model of the Titanic at the bottom of the ocean floor then make sure ' 3D Buildings ' layer is also enabled, which you can click on.
Google Earth has a shipwreck layer which includes the Titanic but the Olympic (the Titanic's sister ship) never sank. The Olympic had a collision with a British warship in 191…1, and had to be brought back to the shipyard in Belfast to be repaired. Other than this, it had a long sailing career, until it was finally retired and scrapped in 1937. You can, however, find the Titanic on Google Earth. See the related question.
In Layers panel of Google Earth under Ocean there is a Shipwrecks layer, which if checked will shows icons for shipwrecks around the world like the HMS Titanic with detail…s about the ship, when/why it was sunk, and sometimes video clips, etc. This, however, will require you to know approximately where a particular ship was sunk to locate it. Note most shipwrecks will only show an icon but a few like the Titanic have a 3-D model of the shipwreck at the bottom of the ocean. There is also the "Shipwrecks Tour" and "Visible Shipwreck Collection" from Google Earth Community (GEC) that can be downloaded and viewed in Google Earth. See related links below.

You can also see Venus, the other planets, and other galaxies in the Sky mode view. For example in Sky mode you can enter "Venus" in the search box to jump there. . Mars and …the Moon are available for Google Earth as separate views each with "Street View" showing high resolution imagery taken by NASA landings. .
If you enable the ' Status Bar ' option under View menu then imagery dates (if available) will appear in status bar that shows at bottom of the map window in Google Earth. …Dates are approximate. Sometimes dates are when the imagery was processed as opposed to when it was captured so you could have an image with snow on the ground with a date in July. For more details on dates in Google Earth imagery see related link below to article.
