Amazing.

From Wikipedia: "At the time of its launch, GeoEye-1 was the world's highest resolution commercial earth-imaging satellite… Google, which has its logo on the side of the rocket, has exclusive online mapping use of its data. While GeoEye-1 is capable of imagery with details the size of 41 centimetres (16 in), that resolution will only be available to the government."

I'd love to see a time-lapse film from that view.

That's a lot of brown hair.

The National Blonde Convention is next week. Actually, I suspect all hair will look brown in vast crowds at that distance. I mean, just about everyone appears to be *wearing* brown too, which is rather unlikely.

The object in the top left of the first photo is a paddle boat pier in the Tidal Basin by the Jefferson Memorial.
