OT: Space Peepers



Space Imaging's Ikonos satellite has taken a detailed color photograph of the
largest human gathering in the history of the world, the Maha Kumbh Mela, a 
spiritual event held every 144 years in Northern India. The festival is expected 
to attract 70 million people to a sacred location on the Ganges River, 15 km 
from Allahabad, for more than a month of bathing rituals.

The before and after pictures are astonishing....
