This site should be called a paranoia site and not a conspiracy site looking at some of the posts re this picture.I know you posted a link to how it
was done in the op OrionHunterx but you should have cut and pasted this in as well.
The picture was made with the Canon 5D mark II and a 400mm-lens.
It consists of 1,665 full format pictures with 21.4 mega pixel, which was recorded by a photo-robot in 172 minutes Then converting of 102 GB raw Data
by a computer with a main memory cache of 48 GB and 16 processors took 94 hours.
See folks not some super spy technology not some super advanced camera as some have claimed, yes folks its a Canon DSLR with a telephoto lens on a
high tech tripod THATS ALL.
This is just a huge panoramic picture but instead of just in the horizontal direction its also on the vertical that also explains some of the strange
mis matches at the border of 2 images like the half cars etc.
Oh and for some who post here Google earth uses satellite images , images taken from aircraft , and of course streetview from cars and bikes.The
government didn't send up spy satellites to photograph your house in close up and post on google earth as some seem to think.
See its plain and simple if you read links or KNOW how its done!!
It is a great image but its not what some think it is!
See my sig for some good advice.
