About This Image
This half-meter resolution satellite image shows the Hollywood Sign, a famous landmark in the Hollywood Hills area of Mount Lee, Santa Monica Mountains, in Los Angeles, California. The iconic sign spells out HOLLYWOOD in 45-foot-tall (14-meter) and 350-foot-long (110-meter) white letters. It was originally created as an advertisement in 1923 and is now protected and promoted by the Hollywood Sign Trust, a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to physically maintain, repair and secure the sign, educate the world about its historical and cultural importance, and raise funds.
