The flooding in Georgia this week has made for many remarkable photos. But none had the vantage point of orbiting satellites.
Digital Globe, a satellite imaging company, has released an photo of the flooding around the Six Flags over Georgia amusement park, and there's not much amusing about it.
Aside from the still, brown water that had swamped some of the roller coasters and other parts of the park by Tuesday when the shot was taken, what's really amazing is the detail available from cameras gliding by hundreds of miles up.
Can you imagine the detail available from the Pentagon's spy sats? Smile!
