Terra Bella Blog: SkySat-3 First Light

Last week, SkySat-3 was successfully launched aboard ISRO’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) rocket into a 500 km sun-synchronous orbit. We captured our first image less than 72 hours after launch and are excited to share an early image of Chicago taken on June 25, 2016 at 10:40AM local time. 
Since inception, we have taken great pride in the diverse, hard-working team we’ve built here at Terra Bella. Each and every member of our team has played an integral part in accomplishing this significant milestone — from building spacecraft radios, to writing imaging analysis algorithms, to managing our growing fleet of satellites. Moments like this are a good reminder that great things can happen with a small and dedicated team.
We’d like to thank our extended team, including ECAPS, Earth2Orbit, SSL and ISRO, for helping us get to this point.
