These Epic Photos Show The March For Our Lives From Space

Wow.

On Saturday, an estimated 800,000 people marched on Washington DC to protest gun violence. If the estimate is correct, it will have been the largest single-day protest in the history of the capital.

 

Naturally, there were thousands of photos taken from amidst the march, but some of the best images were captured from much, much further away.

At the very peak of the march, DigitalGlobe's WorldView-2 satellite turned its attention to the nation's capital, and the results are incredible.
