Costa Concordia Shipwreck From Space

The deadly Costa Concordia shipwreck has been captured in a stunning high resolution image from space that vividly shows the magnitude of the disaster, with the huge luxury cruise ship precariously tipped on its side just off of the Tuscan coastline of the Italian Island of Giglio [Isola del Giglio].
The newly released image was taken by a commercial space satellite owned by DigitalGlobe flying some 300 miles overhead in low Earth orbit. The photo from a WorldView satellite was snapped on January 17, 2012 and shows exactly where the cruise ship ran around five days ago on Friday, January 13, 2012.
