Earth Observing Whales off Argentina

Whale watching from orbit. This article makes it seem easier than it is. DigitalGlobe has only a few Hi-res satellites, so looking in the right place to see the whales is problematic. Also, not many satellites in LEO have the resolution that this study purports.

Still, whale counting/watching is an interesting use of satellite imagery.
