No one can deny that January 20, 2009 was a pretty epic day. Naturally, there are a lot of photos from that special event of watching Obama being sworn in. But this image in particular is quite mind blowing. It’s made up of 220 images and weighs in at an astounding 1,474 megapixels. To check it out click here, you’ll be amazed at how close you can zoom into something, straight crazyness. (And for you super geeks you can read about the technology here).
