Google Maps Captures Plane in Flight Over Chicago
by Mike Richard

What happens when a plane flies through a Google Maps satellite photo? http://www.theatlantic.com/ has the answer:

http://www.geekosystem.com/ notes that “the rainbow effect could have been caused by a satellite imaging process that consisted of “several colored exposures [taken] over a few seconds and then combined”; failing that, unicorn magic.”[/size][/b]

A jet flying at 200 mph would travel nearly 300 feet in one second. The elapsed time between the apparently separate color exposures would have to be in milliseconds.
