A Decade of Satellite Earth
As the decade comes to a close tomorrow we will be treated to a full moon — a blue moon — and a partial lunar eclipse (though not visible from the US). It's an exciting send off from Mother Nature, and to commemorate I've posted some Earth as Art photos, made possible by the Landsat 7 satellite, which is coincidentally celebrating its 10 year anniversary in space. The original photos were created by the USGS National Center for EROS to introduce the general public to the Landsat Program, which is administered jointly by USGS and NASA. [via the Huffington Post]
