There is no reason to assume these are civilian satellites. Any one of a number of affected or interested countries could have provided the imagery (or ship information) to Reliance. Its not saying *who* analyzed the images. ;)

Then again, how are ship's captains supposed to know *where* they are allowed to drop anchor? Is there a "Call before you drop" anchor service similar to "call before you dig?"


Anchorages are normally VERY clearly marked on maritime navigation charts.
