The Mall of Georgia shopping center in Buford, Georgia, is pictured in this satellite image taken on Black Friday, November 28, 2009, and obtained on November 24, 2010. More Americans will be out shopping this year on Black Friday -- or at least that's how it looks from outer space. Satellite images from Remote Sensing Metrics show more cars parked outside shopping malls across the country in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving and increasingly crowded parking lots usually mean higher sales.
