    • I went to the lower left corner to change ‘layers’ to the photo-like view. The map has 2022 date but it looks like a really old image as the edge isn’t even near any houses.

  1. I just went to G00gle Earth and the image is the same. The date at the bottom says 2021. But it looks like a wrong image. There are adult trees all around the sinkhole which would not have had time to grow since its biggest expansion. I think it went to the size recorded here and then the mud and fallen trees filled in the edges quite a bit (my guess).
