Inauguration: The gods-eye view


Blogger David Thompson reminds us of one angle the inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of The United States wasn’t covered from: from above. Well, actually it was. He presents two images of the proceedings taken by the GeoEye-1 satellite at around 11am yesterday from a height of 423 miles.

I suppose you could look at it as your god of choice looking down at the new President, or you could look at it as the marvel of scientific advancement. Either way, we look like ants. And we scurry around on this planet doing very great things and sometimes committing unspeakable acts. But here some of us are.
