GeoEye-1 Satellite ImageIt is always very impressive to me when I see images taken by satellites from space of things happening on Earth. The biggest thing to happen here in the U.S. in a long time was yesterday’s inauguration of President Obama into office.

The GeoEye-1 Earth imaging satellite took the opportunity to shoot an image of the events as it passed over Washington D.C. 423 miles above the city in space. When it shot the image, the satellite was hurtling along at four miles per second.
