The Netherlands
Asked by me

Why does the island appear only in satellite mode?

The ghost island was my first exploration. It took place a year ago, on the 12th of January 2013.

Details of the island.

I went there and I didn't see a thing. The sailors told me that it was a sandbank that had been swallowed up years ago. So, at that time, "the island didn't exist."

However, since a year ago, the image on Google Maps has changed. Today the island exists in satellite vision and in the simplified vision. So the doubt has returned, was it the tide?
