    That's actually a picture from an aircraft and not a satellite picture.

    The actual elevation has been black out on the bottom of screen shot..... :sneaky2:

    I would estimate about 4-500ft. ;)

    The bottom right of the screenshot shows: Eye alt. 165 ft. which means the picture is as if the viewer was looking down at it from 165 feet. That value changes as you zoom in and out of the picture. The altitude that shows on the screen is just the height of ground above sea level that you are looking at. It does not show from what altitude the picture was taken.

    Who said anything about a satellite ??
    But ...
    Your right this was most likely taken from the belly of an airplane flying between 15,000 feet and 30,000 feet
    At that elevation i would consider the area a rather large "space"

    When one talks about something being seen from space, as in the title of this thread, that pretty much implies either a satellite or the ISS or shuttle since airplanes do not fly in space.

    That's right!! If you are jealous...just say so, don't babble out useless drival. The man has a reason to be proud and show his stuff off, not to be nit-picked to death on where the photo was taken. How about everyone that is doing this show a photo from "space" of YOUR antenna the same way he did?
