Image of Oahu, Hawaii, from space. You can see a tiny plane on a runway at the bottom of the island.

Earth Observing-1 developed and tested advanced new imaging technologies that will improve future earth imaging observatories and make them less expensive. This earth Observing 1 image is the island of Oahu, Hawaii. In the square is the airport in Honolulu. At a larger size, you can see the airplanes on the runway!
