City crews painted "Black Lives Matter" in 50-foot-wide yellow letters.

A street leading to the White House was officially renamed "Black Lives Matter Plaza" on Friday. To further the point, the phrase "Black Lives Matter" was painted in 50-foot-wide yellow letters down the street.

Now, however, a satellite photo is circulating the internet, showing that the mural can be seen from space.

The change to 16th Street was directed by Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser.

That stretch of 16th Street has been the site of protests this past week, in the wake of George Floyd's death.
