Smithsonian Traveling Exhibition Shows Earth from Space – GeoEye High Resolution Imagery Featured in Article

Cannon Beach – Each day, high above the clouds, dozens of sophisticated imaging satellites circle the Earth. These high-tech machines are capable of capturing extraordinary conditions and events that are nearly impossible to document from the surface of the planet. These remarkable images, which reveal the awesome beauty of the planet’s surface through the “eyes” of a space satellite, will be on display in a new Smithsonian traveling exhibition at the Cannon Beach History Center from July 2 to Aug. 28.

San Francisco – The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge is visible as it crosses San Francisco Bay, one of the world’s great harbors. Detailed, high-resolution images reveal buildings, automobiles, and other evidence of densely developed urban centers. Submitted photo from IKONOS satellite by GeoEye, October 1999.
