San Francisco-based Skybox Imaging has snapped some gorgeous imagery of the planet we all live on, all the way from space. The footage was taken at 600km above the ground, where you can easily make out cars, trucks, shipping containers and more.

Skybox Imaging's SkySat-1 was launched in November as part of the Ukraine's Dnepr-1 rocket program. Skybox Imaging's official website stated that the SkySat-1 is capable of capturing 1920x1080 at 30FPS, and up to 90 seconds per clip. The video above gives you a good look at what the Full HD-capable satellite is capable of.
