    7.5 Go Image!

    Don't worry, you won't download the image for yourself! It use a flash animation to zoom in and out! It's very cool!

    Fantastic resolution. In the lower right hand corner there are 4 cars parked. One of them is a white Volvo with the licence plate of YX-63-TT, and above it is a blue VW with the license plate of DWL-F077. Also on the left hand side about 1/2 way up there is a man just coming out from behind a building.....walking on a sidewalk. He would be recogniseable to someone who knows him.

    Wonder if this was taken with one of our spy satalites.

    Mox > it's just a picture, taken by a camera placed about 300 feet above the ground. It's got 2.5 billion pixels, making it the largest (digital) panoramic picture in the world.

    Here's the technical explanation.

    Thanks Neg. That explains the angle of the photo then, but it is still great resolution.
