Graduates of Changchun University of Science and Technology in Jilin province recently received special gifts to celebrating their big moment.

In cooperation with Changguang Satellite Technology Co, the university issued a group of photos taken by the satellite Jilin-1.

Around 100 students posed on a playground with the abbreviation of the university's name shown on red and yellow cardboard. As the satellite transited, its camera grabbed the images from far overhead.

The Jilin-1 satellite family, developed by Changguang, is China's first domestic remote-sensing satellite constellation for commercial purposes. It captures super high-definition images.

After its initial success, the company decided to continue taking such photos for colleges and universities.
