Satellite Overflight of BRC @ 11:49AM Thurs 9/01/11

Postby oscillator » Mon Aug 22, 2011 10:40 pm

From one of the Google Earth folks...
=====================================
The Satellite Overflight of BRC will be at 11:49am on Thursday 9/1
this year. I believe they are tasking the GeoEye-1 satellite with
50cm resolution (as opposed to 1m resolution on the IKONOS satellite
used last year).

Please announce far and wide and encourage people to lay out art to be
photographed from space. I know the water trucks have some plans this
year.

Cheers!

Does anyone have the link to the 2010 photo? The one that you can zoom in on? I've searched and can't find it.

For those who joined us for a circle at 5:00 & C, it's clearly visible!

The Geoeye version is supposedly 3m. Anyone know where to get the full photo, or is that all we can expect?

That was a project of Jim Bower (the One Mile Clock) and tribe to make the biggest word ever on the playa. They gridded it off, dug a shallow (like less than 3 inch) furrow and the water truck crew was all about helping out, planned it out knowing how fast their water evaporates did a real fast run just before 11:49.
