September 8, 2008

GeoEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: GEOY), announced that the 30th Space Wing at Vandenberg Air Force Base (VAFB), Calif. has approved a Sept. 6 launch for GeoEye-1. Hurricane Hanna has changed course away from Florida, so the Company's launch provider, United Launch Alliance (ULA), has mobilized personnel from the East Coast to the West Coast to support the new launch date. Final preparations for launch are underway.

The launch video and commentary will be streamed 'live' over the Internet beginning at about 11:15 a.m. PDT after feeding 15 minutes of bars and tone.
