From the Jeff on the BRC_GPS Yahoo group:
Hi Everyone,

I have arranged with GeoEye for a satellite image acquisition on Sept 2 at *precisely* 11:41 am. That is NOT!!! playa time ... as in, not at 12:00, not 12:15, not "oh shit where is my watch"... at *precisely* at 11:41am. So if you want to send out a notice to any artists who want to do a project that is captured from *space* (as in not from the airplanes) they need to do it at *precisely* that time. I will get the imagery roughly 24 hours later and it will be posted soon thereafter.

I will notify the artists who have already asked.


It'll be 1 meter resolution (think zoomed in Google Maps), so individual people won't be visible. But if several hundred people painted themselves purple and laid down in a ☮, it might look pretty sweet.
