I wanted to carry additional aerial photos of the August 28, 2010 Glenn Beck "Restoring Honor" rally so I put on my Google cap and started searching. First off is this aerial shot that has been circling the intertubes (h/t Newsbusters) and is one of the most awesome:

How many people do you think attended yesterday's event? I would venture to say it was between 100,000 to 200,000 but I could be wrong. Cross posted to LCR.

  1. info@AirPhotosLive.com if you would like to see if they care to recalculate their estimate. Maybe they are mistaken and not an inept company.
