Satellite Bird's Eye View of San Francisco

This is an incredible hi-res bird's eye view of San Francisco taken by DigitalGlobe's WorldView-3 satellite.

WorldView-3 is about 17° above the horizon from San Francisco, and it is looking about 60° away from the point directly under it.

 The satellite is way out over the Pacific – more than 1300 km or 800 miles to the west.
