Burning Man from Space
Skybox has released a series of satellite images showing Black Rock City, NV before, during and after this year's Burning Man festival.
The Transformation of Burning Man uses satellite imagery captured with SkySat-1 and SkySat-2 between August 12 and September 3. The images show how Black Rock City is built up and dismantled in just a matter of days.
In the screenshot above you can see the area of the round Center Camp, before, during and after the festival. Skybox has overlaid all the satellite imagery on top of a Google Map. Each image has its own transparency control, enabling you to compare and contrast the imagery of the whole festival site over nearly a month of time.
