I need to see on Google maps the circle-radius of N km around specified city? There is some kind of similar feature when the button "Show My Location" is pressed. Any idea?

It's possible to do this in code via the javascript API, but I don't believe the maps.google.com page itself has an option to let you place a circle anywhere.
