A GeoEye customer recognized the boat ARA Fragata Libertad in a recent posting of GeoEye-1 imagery in the GeoEye Image Gallery. ARA means Armada de la Republica Argentina and the boat serves as a school ship in the Argentine Navy.
The half-meter ground resolution color image of Boston Harbor, Massachusetts was collected by the GeoEye-1 satellite on July 11, 2009. The tall ships seen in the image, tied up to the pier, are participants of the Sail Boston 2009, an official port of the Tall Ships Atlantic Challenge Event, which took place July 8 - 13, 2009.
