2018 Satelitte Image available?

I've been searching to see if there are any high resolution satellite images of Black Rock City 2018. Any leads?

The image is out there, just not accessible for free to us yet. I saw on some sight catering to media a large high def image for $450. Gotta wait.

This past year, with this all in mind, we spray painted on the top of our carport/kitchen-

The idea is a detailed sattelite image made During the Burn (and then everyone guessing for the day and time :D )

Thanks anyway. (the coordinates bring you some miles west from what the location could be)

There is a large container park near Fly ranch, still searching for that gigantic piece of MOOP without wings.

Satellites are the realm of the wealthy and war making. One of the satellite companies was attached to a startup sympathetic to the burn beginning with a G, and the images were released.

Now satellite images are a business, any user of the images would have to agree in a contract how far the images would be published. More publishing, higher price.

IMO the BORG should negotiate public release and pay for it. It would be a powerful tool for Placement.

Have fun.
Going to its location, none of the sat views provided by the maps selectable at that link (apple, google, openStreet, ersi, yandex, mapbox) show it. They all show older images. Some are as old as 2010. Newest I can find is 2017.

If you want the challange, from the insitu images published, you can use sat imgaes and google 3D sat view to identify the site. But due to the vandal risk, don't dox it.
