New NASA's DSCOVR satellite provides breathtaking view of Earth

NASA's Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) has returned a breathtaking image of planet Earth from a distance of roughly one million miles from the homeworld. The image captures the full disk of our planet showing a stunning sunbathed...Show More Summary

NASA Releases Stunning Photo Of Earth From One Million Miles Away

NASA released a breathtaking image of Earth from the Deep Space Climate Observatory spacecraft.

This Is The First Image From NASA's Deep Space Climate Observatory

The Deep Space Climate Observatory (also cleverly known as DSCOVR) is a spacecraft that sits a million miles away from Earth, hovering between the Sun and our planet. Its mission: to monitor space weather, and send us an endless stream of interplanetary selfies. This is its first. Read more...

How Earth Looks From 1M Miles Away

Not bad for a four megapixel shot, right? NASA has released its first photo taken from a million miles away on the Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite, reports. Shot on July 6, the pretty image snapped by the Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) shows clouds swirling around Central...

NASA satellite camera provides 'EPIC' view of Earth

A NASA camera on the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite has returned its first view of the entire sunlit side of Earth from one million miles away.

UFO ‘Mothership’ Sighted Near Sun In NASA Images, Ship Is ‘Size Of Idaho’ Researcher Claims

A prominent online UFO researcher claims to have spotted a massive UFO mothership apparently on a collision course with Earth’s sun, an image that appeared in videos taken by NASA from its Solar and Heliospheric Observatory satellite,...Show More Summary

Discovery of ‘Monster Black Holes’ Points to the Existence of Millions More

British astronomers, using Nasa's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) satellite observatory orbiting the Earth, have discovered five new ‘supermassive' black holes, leading scientists to suggest that they've vastly underestimated the number of these phenomena in our galaxy.

NASA’s Earth Observatory captured this picture of something surprising in the Pacific: lava flows in

last monthGenres / Sci Fi : io9

NASA’s Earth Observatory captured this picture of something surprising in the Pacific: lava flows in the area have fused two tiny islands into one larger island. Right now, the newly created island measures about a square mile, and is still mostly devoid of plant and animal life. But, as it grows, that may change. Read more...

What Do Reservoirs Reveal When They Dry Up?

Lake Powell drying up. (Image: NASA Earth Observatory/Dylan Thuras) Lake Mead is shrinking. The Great Salt Lake is shrinking. The Salton Sea is shrinking. Not just in the American West, but in Africa, Asia, and the sub-Arctic reaches of the globe, lakes are disappearing. Show More Summary

A Look At Mount St. Helens 35 Years After Its Historic Eruption

2 months agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

This satellite image of Washington’s Mount St. Helens comes courtesy of NASA’s Earth Observatory, which notes that tomorrow is the 35th anniversary of the volcano’s eruption and subsequent landslide, which killed 57 people. Scientists still keep a close watch on the site from both the air and ground. Read more...

Mapping 13 Years of Clouds on Earth

3 months agoHumor / odd : mental_floss

Today’s forecast: cloudy with a chance of maps. The NASA Earth Observatory has condensed more than a decade of data from the  Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer  (MODIS) to create a single map of Earth’s average cloud cover...Show More Summary

New NASA Map Shows Our Cloudy World

Blue Marble, yes. Cloudy Blue Marble? Most definitely. The NASA Earth Observatory is out with another compelling image of our planet, one that shows it's a cloudy place. Specifically, about two-thirds of Earth's surface is covered by clouds at any given moment. The map is based on data collected between...

NASA observes ‘significant solar flare’ on the sun that thankfully missed Earth

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, has sent back pictures of a massive, X-class solar flare. The X-class flares are the strongest, and this one received an X2.7 rating. It wasn’t pointed at us, and there was no notable harm done, but there was a brief radio blackout (and a burst of static) over the Pacific Ocean…

Watch This Time Lapse Montage of the Sun’s Atmosphere Captured over Four Years

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft has been observing the sun since 2010 with the goal of understanding its influence on the Earth and near-Earth space. Using time lapse footage captured by the SDO’s Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) between 2011 and 2015, Michael König edited this cool video. This joins a previous video he created using [...]Show More Summary

NASA Captures Massive Solar Flare; May Amplify Northern Lights

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) captured photos and video of the first super-powerful sun flare of 2015. The X-class solar flare was directed at Earth, and while the Earth’s atmosphere protects us from the harmful radiation, it caused a strong radio blackout. More importantly for us photographers, though, such massive radiation bursts may lead to [...]Show More Summary

Watch NASA launch its mission to the magnetosphere tonight

If all goes well, NASA will finally launch its Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) observatories tonight. Comprised of four identical spacecraft (shown above in a clean room), its purpose is to study the magnetic fields around Earth for information on how they connect and disconnect. Show More Summary
