gates from the sky

here's a photo

from Gary Price (lib'n)'s Resource Shelf blog:

Just Released, Satellite Image of The Gates Project in NYC's Central Park
"The image was taken Saturday, Feb. 12, 2005, the same day that The Gates
were unfurled. At a cost of $20 Million, The Gates was conceived by artists
Christo and Jeanne-Claude. The image shows all of Central Park the gates
geometrically placed throughout the park...Space Imaging decided to
commemorate this environmental art exhibit by tasking its IKONOS to share
its bird's eye view of the 7,500 gates with saffron-colored fabric panels.
From 423 miles in space moving over the Earth in a north-to-south orbit at
17,000 mph, this perspective showcases the size and scope of 23-mile-long
The Gates project."
