Remembering 9/11 from space: Series of satellite images show the devastation in New York City 19 years ago





Satellites flying over New York City on September 11 captured the terrorist attacks from space

An image shows a massive smoke plume rising from where the massive buildings once stood

The Spot satellite used its infrared technology to highlight hot spots blazing in the surrounding area

Other devices used high-resolution to capture intricate details of lower Manhattan and the devastation 

Approximately 2,606 were killed when the planes crashed into the World Trade Center towers

운명의 날 목격한 우주비행사의 9.11 테러 위성 사진


      위성 사진에는 한때 건물들이 서 있던 곳에서 거대한 연기가 피어오르는 것이 보여지는데, 이 연기는 국제우주정거장(ISS)이 약 250마일 상공에서 포착한 것이다.


적외선 띠를 장착한 NASA 위성은 공격  후 지상에서 활활 타오르는 많은 뜨거운 지점들을 부각시켰고 또 다른 포착된 흰 먼지가 다음날 황폐화에도 여전히 남아있다.


미국 우주국은 19주년을 기념하기 위해 ISS에 탑승한 운명의 날을 목격한 우주비행사 프랭크 컬버트스턴이 촬영한 사진과 함께 오늘날과 같은 맨해튼 하부의 위성사진을 공유했다.

위성사진은 9월 11일의 공격과 다음 몇 주 동안 남겨진 파괴를 보여준다.

스팟 위성은 비행기가 타워에 충돌한 지 약 3시간 후에 맨하탄 상공을 날고 있었다.


당시 루돌프 줄리아니 뉴욕시장이 맨해튼 하류에 대피령을 내리기 30분 전, 두 번째 타워가 무너진 지 1시간여 만인 이날 오전 11시30분쯤이었다.


이 우주선에는 적외선 기술이 적용돼 황폐화를 둘러싼 화재 지점이 부각됐다.

On September 11, 2001, terrorists hijacked two planes and crashed them into New York City's Twin Towers in lower Manhattan, killing 2,606 people – and satellites captured the horrifying scene from space. 


Satellite images show a massive smoke plume rising from where the buildings once stood, which was spotted by the International Space Station (ISS) some 250 miles above the surface.


A NASA satellite equipped with infrared bands highlighted a number of hot spots blazing surrounding ground zero hours after the attack and another captured white dust still lingering over the devastation the following day.


In honor of the 19th anniversary, the American space agency  shared a satellite images of lower Manhattan as it looks today, along with a shot taken by astronaut Frank Culbertston who witnessed the that fateful day aboard the ISS.


This was around 11:30 am ET, 20 minutes before Rudolph Guiliani, New York’s mayor at the time, ordered lower Manhattan to be evacuated and about an hour after the second tower collapsed. This device is equipped with infrared technology, which highlighted fire spots (red dots) surrounding the devastation

The satellite images reveal the attacks on September 11 and the destruction left behind over the next few weeks.

The Spot satellite was flying over Manhattan about three hours after the planes crashed into the towers.


This was around 11:30 am ET, some 30 minutes before Rudolph Giuliani, New York’s mayor at the time, ordered lower Manhattan to be evacuated and about an hour after the second tower collapsed.


This craft is equipped with infrared technology, which highlighted fire spots surrounding the devastation. 


The Landsat 7 satellite captured the scene on September 12 , using its Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus, allowing it to spot smoke flowing up from the ground. If you swipe right the satellite snapped an image of the same location two years later

Maxar’s IKONOS satellite snapped an image of ground zero on the same day as Landsat, but with its high-resolution capabilities, the image shows intricate details of the Financial District.





A massive cloud of white dust can be seen lingering over where the World Trade Center Towers once stood.


IKONOS took another image on September 15, giving the world an up-close look at ground zero, which was nothing more than debris and dust.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) offered their services to officials following the attacks, but constructing a 3D model of the surround area. The organization used LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) to create a digital surface model to help locate structures, including stairwells, elevator shafts and basements
