Huge crowds across the U.S., visible from space
Hundreds of thousands of people showed up in Washington, D.C. to attend Saturday’s March For Our Lives. As you might expect, that kind of turnout makes for some pretty impressive photos — even from space.
New images from DigitalGlobe’s Worldview-2 satellite show the sea of people — and their signs — gathered to march and rally for common-sense gun reform. They’re an astounding reminder of the sheer size of this movement. Isn’t that right, NRA?
See for yourself.
It’s hard to compete with a picture from space, but on-the-ground images from marches across the country aren’t too shabby, either. President Trump did not witness any of the historic events personally, as he was at Mar-a-Lago, but we feel confident that if he had, he’d have started comparing the crowd size to his inauguration in no time at all. (He’d be sad.)
Here’s a look at several cities.

Buffalo, New York
