Burning Man 2006 in Google Earth

Burning Man 2006 in Google EarthLooks like Google acquired an aerial photo of the Burning Man 2006 event and has incorporated it as part of the big update pushed out today. Check it out here. Also, you can view it in Google Maps. It looks like an aerial photo showing the event during its busiest time. The event was held on August 28 through September 4th, so this data is only a month old! How's that for current data? The resolution of this image looks to be a little less than 1 foot per pixel. You can see people moving around as little blobs, although you can't make out any real details.

[UPDATE: see story about Burning Man and Google Earth in a recent CNET news article.]
