If you are looking for geographic names (rivers, mountain ranges, etc), Google Earth does a very poor job of providing that information.
I have found GeoNames (geonames.org) to be a very useful resource when attempting to identify features in Landsat images I'm working with.
The image shown is of the rivers feeding into Deception Bay, Papau New Guinea.
Note that GeoNames does use Google as its imaging source.

Proposed NASA #Budget Cuts #IR Space #Telescope & Phases Out ISS

A proposed #WideField #Infrared #SpaceTelescope would be canceled, and funding for the #InternationalSpaceStation would be phased-out by 2025, in a #NASAbudget for #FiscalYear 2019 proposed by the #Trump #Administration. The budget places higher priorities on #missions which would take #humans back to the #Moon, and eventually to #Mars.
