GeoEye satellite image of Obama's inauguration - free download

I wrote about the GeoEye-1 satellite capturing President Obama's inauguration in my previous post. The satellite images are now available for free download (including the high-resolution versions). I posted a couple below. [GeoEye gallery is here]

This half-meter resolution image of the United States Capitol, Washington D.C. was collected by the GeoEye-1 satellite on Jan. 20, 2009 to commemorate the Inauguration of President Barack Obama. The image, taken through high, whispy white clouds, shows the masses of people attending the Inaugural Celebration.

This shows portions of the monuments along the National Mall and the masses of people between the Capitol and the Washington Monument.
