Say Cheese, Comrade

Once the exclusive pervue of governments, the ability to spy on other people's space programs seems to have been brought to the masses:

A commercial remote sensing spacecraft has caught Chinese space workers readying their second piloted space mission.

The Ikonos satellite, operated by Space Imaging of Thornton, Colorado, took images of China’s human spaceflight launch complex on October 3 and October 9, with a shadow covering much of the rocket between two structures. The very tip of the rocket can be seen emerging from the shadow.

Anybody have the co-ordinates? I bet you can look at this with Google!
