Commercial satellite company DigitalGlobe says it has managed to take a picture of China's first aircraft carrier during its sea trials in the Yellow Sea. Stephen Wood, director of DigitalGlobe's analysis centre, said the vessel had been photographed on 8 December off the Chinese coast approximately 100km (62 miles) from the port of Dalian by one of the company's orbiting satellites.
