Post-raid Satellite Image Of Osama Bin Laden Compound

Satellite images of the compund where Osama bin Laden was likely shot and killed have been released by GeoEye, a satellite imagery provider.


 
GeoEye:
This one-meter resolution image shows a walled compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. According to news reports Abbottabad is the town where Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces. The image was collected by the IKONOS satellite on May 2, 2011 at 10:51 a.m. local time while flying 423 miles above the Earth at an average speed of 17,000 mph, or four miles per second.
The timing of this image would be taken place 10 hours after the attack.

The crash site of the problem-helicopter seems plainly visibly as a blackened helicopter-shaped mass.
While there are photographs around of helicopter chunks eventually being hauled away, this satellite image seems to have been taken before then:

I know the subject of this post is Osama but the most interesting fact in it to me is the fact that we have satellite's going 17,000mph around the planet.

Gorodot said...

And the pakistani still say they didnt know he was there... sure .

cadexn said...

Agreed with J.R. comment above. 17,000mph is one amazing speed. (off-topic) heh

Doro said...

Great job, but for me most interesting is how we can be spied by satelites.

Dave Benzene said...

I'm still not entirely convinced that the US is being transparent enough with this. It wouldn't surprise me if there is a lot of backroom dealing going on with pakistan.

Paulie Pecans said...

We could be spied on by satellites, but I'm not interesting enough to be followed.
