First Images form Skybox’s SkySat-1 Released

By Joe Francica

The first images from Skybox's SkySat-1 were released today. Skybox released this statement:

We are excited to share the first images from SkySat-1, the first of our planned constellation of 24 satellites ... The following images were taken over Perth, Australia, on December 4, 2013 at 10:25AM (local time) and are untuned and not yet calibrated. As you can see below, features are clearly discernible that validate our goal to provide high-quality, sub-meter imagery: car windshields, varying car colors, road markings, etc. These images exceed our early expectations for quality. 

Sample images are below but full resolution images can also be viewed (Images courtesy of Skybox).
