Google Earth View of Russia from Alaska

The Alaskan island from where you can see Russia is called Little Diomede. Only about 150 Alaskans live on the whole island. And just about two miles away; in full view of every single house on the island is the nation of Russia. Specifically, it is the Russian Island of Big Diomede which sits about 25 miles from the Russian Siberian mainland (which you can also see from the American island.) Most everybody on Little Diomede had relatives who lived on Big Diomede.(CNN)
And here's Google Earth View from Palin's Alaska to Putin's Russia:
