The Sacramento area is on the map again! Folsom, California is featured on Time Magazine’s June 11th cover, and it hits newsstands today! The picture is made up of over 900 Intel drones illuminating the sky, arranged to depict the publication’s iconic logo and border. The report is titled “The Drone Age.” Anyone see this while the pic was being taken?

To create the first TIME cover shot by a drone, we worked with @intel’s Drone Light Show team and @astraeusaerial—plus 958 drones set to display a precise shade of red, and another one to hold a camera in the air at just the right angle. The result was one of the biggest #drone shows ever produced in the U.S., so of course it drew some attention. One Folsom, Calif., resident interviewed by a local news reporter recounted, “Up in the sky, I saw the future.” Read, and see, the full Special Report at TIME.com/drones. Drone video still by TIME
