How Will You Celebrate EarthDay? - GeoEye High Resolution Imagery Featured

How will you celebrate EarthDay? We'll celebrate with a stunning view of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

This half-meter resolution satellite image of Mount Kilimanjaro in northeastern Tanzania was taken from 423 miles in space by the GeoEye-1 satellite on July 17, 2009. Rising from the African plateau with an elevation of 5,895 meters, Kilimanjaro is the largest free-standing mountain in the world and one of the most popular mountaineering sites. It is also an active volcano with three volcanic cones: Shira, Kibo and Mawenzi. The GeoEye-1 satellite is owned and operated by Va.-based GeoEye, Inc. and is the world's highest resolution commercial Earth imaging satellite.
