I do not think it was a satellite photo.

Ha! Give me raw images instead of these collages and I will
sit up and take notice.

Its true that other governments have some nice satellites. But,
if there is a coverup, then the right people will be where they
need to be to do the covering up, whomever takes the photos.

I don't think it is a satellite. The resolution of satellites is
shown clearly when you go outside the urban areas. The urban
areas have the high resolution aircraft coverage. Terraserver
shows such images too. The resolution is great but they are not
satellites. Ask yourself, if they were all satellite images
wouldn't the entire Google map image for the whole nation be the
same resolution? They are not because the satellite image
resolution is relatively poor but the urban areas have had
aircraft photo overflights and that image collection is used

>BTW - any luck with that "raw" feed?

Waiting..... Bureaucracies!
