THE EARTH FROM SPACE POSTERS

The Living Earth The Brilliant Earth
This image is a mosaic (color composite) of hundreds of satellite images, reveals the entire Earth in natural color, unobstructed by clouds. This satellite topographical map is both beautiful and accurate. The extent of desert is staggering, and the rich, deep oceans show up wonderfully. It displays the longitude and latitude along with “Time Clocks” that represent the different time zones around the world. Through the use of NOAA satellites that follow a polar route, thousands of individual satellite images were combined to produce the truest image of what the Earth looks like. The mosaic, not unlike a jigsaw puzzle, was assembled over a 14 month period of time. The Brilliant Earth night view is a great companion to this image. The same format as The Living Earth image only made of night time images and ice data. This print dramatically reveals the effect of humanities influence on our planet. This print fascinates all of us who are curious about the world we inhabit. Intense concentrations of energy use show up in Eastern North America and Northern Europe. Also showing up are oil and gas fires and shrimp boats fishing by Night in the Sea of Japan. Can you see the city of New York?
