DENVER, COLORADO, January 24, 2001: Space Imaging's IKONOS satellite has taken a detailed, one-meter resolution color photograph of the largest human gathering in the history of the world, the Maha Kumbh Mela. The IKONOS image, which was collected the day before the most sacred and busiest bathing day on Jan. 24, is available for free to the media. However, anyone can visit the above web site and download the 2.5 MB jpeg files of before and after images. While they didn't capture the main day, the shot on the 23rd is spectacular! The Indian satellite IRS-ID has also taken a photo, but at five meter resolution.
