This is a very helpful feature on Yahoo maps. Sometimes there are details on the maps that do not show up on the standard map view. On the map there are three options: Map, Hybrid, and Satellite. The satellite view shows photography of the ground taken by satellites in space (where the astronauts are). You can see things that don't appear on road maps such as race tracks, ballparks, mountains, trees, etc etc.

In this case all you have available to you are street addresses. You can actually put in your street address in yahoo maps and then when you go to that location you can click on Hybrid (shows street names overlayed on satellite view).
