Haiti Earthquake Pictures: The Damage As Seen From Space (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

GeoEye has collaborated with Google Earth to share their most recent satellite imagery of Haiti, which captures the devastation wrought by the earthquake as seen from space.

The satellite images were taken at approximately 10:27AM ET on Wednesday, January 13, from an altitude of 423 miles in space.

The photos (see slideshow below) detail the catastrophic damage suffered by homes, buildings, and Haiti's Presidential palace; people attempting to set up temporary shelter in a soccer stadium away from structures that potentially collapse; and survivors streaming through the streets of Port-au-Prince. Certain images also capture smoke from fires burning in the capital.
