Inauguration seen from 423 miles up.

Clear skies over Washington DC today. Here is a view just released of Obama's inauguration seen from the GeoEye-1 satellite. This bird orbits at an altitude of 423 miles above the Earth and has been used for Google Earth images.
The 'dirty' looking smudges that look like the ants that came out my driveway cracks, crawled into the house - and later in my cat food bowls in my kitchen - are humans! Click on the images for a closer view and you can make out the individual ants people.
Oh the humanity!
