Alien Ant Colony

Washington DC from space

Popular Science has gotten their hands on some amazing satellite photography of yesterday’s inauguration on the National Mall. The amount of people and the crowds formed and grouped looks indistinguishable from a colony of ants coming though the cracks of a sidewalk. The sidewalk in this case also having a miniature sundial shaped like the Washington Monument and the White House.

If the imagery and resolution of the ground wasn’t amazing enough [at a 19.6inch ground resolution], one commenter points out:

If you look at the full size image, you can actually see another satellite in the top left corner.

That’s some depth of field!
