Inaugural
« on: January 21, 2009, 10:47:41 AM »

From Universe Today:

Travelling at 17,000 mph at an altitude of 423 miles, the 4,300 lb GeoEye-1 snapped a very high resolution image of Washington D.C. just before Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States. Looking like crowds of ants vying for space around Capitol Hill and the White House, hundreds of thousands of spectators gathered to watch this historic day unfold . . .

Good eye!  That certainly looks like another satellite.

Hate to burst your bubble, but that isn't a satellite.  It is a giant space dragonfly

That's what I thought. On Google Maps it appears to be some sort of dock, with lots of paddle boats? Or, it could be a dragonfly.

Definite WOW! pic, especially contrasted with the "before" shot from the same website.

In this one you can clearly see it's a space dragonfly.
