The Internet Had A Photoshop Field Day With NASA's Unbelievable Photo

This week, NASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio posted to Twitter a magnificent photo that shows the moon passing between NOAA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory and Earth. “Almost unbelievable that this is a real photo,” Mastracchio wrote. The moon passed between @NASA climate observatory and the earth. Show More Summary

Watch NASA's Time Lapse of One Year on Earth Taken From Space

NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) has captured one year’s worth of images of Earth from its position in space between the Earth and the sun, on the Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite. NASA compiled 3,000 of these...Show More Summary

Explosive caterpillar infestation in New England is visible from space

There's been a gypsy moth caterpillar "population boom" in New England and mid-Atlantic states, and the infestation isn't only evident to locals on the ground - it can be seen from space. NASA Earth Observatory satellite images of Rhode Island show how much the caterpillars have chewed through the region's forests. Show More Summary

Lunar Photobomb = Awesome Sometimes the moon wants all the attention. NASA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite (DSCOVR) capture an amazing sequence of images showing the moon eclipsing the sunlit side of the Earth.  “For the second...Show More Summary

Cool: Moon Passing in Front of the Earth

A NASA camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite captured a unique view of the moon as it moved in front of the sunlit side of Earth last month. The series of test images shows the fully illuminated "dark side" of the moon that is never visible from Earth. Show More Summary

Moon Photobombs Earth

NASA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory, or DSCOVR, is a satellite that orbits the Sun about 1.5 million km from the Earth. That’s a (meta)stable orbit that keeps it between the Sun and Earth, so that when it looks at our planet, it sees...Show More Summary

See The Moon Photobombing The Earth, Again

For the second time in a year, a NASA camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite captured a ‘lunar photobomb’

NASA camera catches moon 'photobombing' Earth

For only the second time in a year, a NASA camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite captured a view of the moon as it moved in front of the sunlit side of Earth. "For the second time in the life of DSCOVR,Show More Summary

These Two Crops Use More Of The World's Water Than All Other Crops Combined

Satellite photos of farms in Brazil, Image: NASA’s Earth Observatory The world is drying up all around us, but which crops can we use to shift the blame away from our cars, pools, and cartons of almond milk? Cast your eyes hard on these two culprits, right in your very own kitchen cabinet. More »

NASA’s Solar Dynamic Observatory Captures Mercury’s Transit Between Earth and the Sun

4 months agoHumor / odd : Laughing Squid

NASA‘s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured the planet Mercury’s May 9, 2016 transit between the Earth and Sun. The transit occurred between approximately 7:12 a.m. and 2:42 p.m. EDT, and the video shows the event across a number of different wavelengths. Mercury passes between the Earth and Sun like this about 13 times per century. Host […]

Epic time lapse videos of Mercury's transit of the Sun

4 months agoHumor / odd :

About 13 times per century, the planets align in the heavens and the Earth can watch Mercury crossing the face of the Sun. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory was watching too and captured time lapse videos from several angles using various instruments measuring magnetism, visible light, and UV. Show More Summary

Solar Flare Is Beautiful, Terrifying in 4K High Def Video by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory

4 months agoHumor / odd : Geekosystem

From Earth, the Sun generally just looks like a big bright ball, but there's a lot of activity up there that we don't notice with our puny human eyes—especially because it's not exactly wise to look directly at the Sun. The Solar Dynamics...Show More Summary

Epic Detection of Gravitational Waves --"NASA Observatories Poised to Improve Current Blurry Vision"

On Sept. 14, 2015 waves of energy traveling for more than a billion years gently rattled space-time in the vicinity of Earth. The disturbance, produced by a pair of merging black holes, was captured by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory...

Trilobites: This Week’s Other Solar Eclipse

More than 22,000 miles above Earth, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory has been getting a full blackout each day.

Earth Looks Bruised in the Shadow of the Eclipse

6 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmodo

We normally observe solar eclipses from our perspective here on the surface—or even from an airplane —but this image from NASA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory shows this week’s total solar eclipse from a rather unique vantage point. Read more...

NASA Infrared Observatory: "2013 Supernova Released Elements Needed to Create Earth-like Planets"

Observations made with NASA’s flying observatory, the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) indicate that nova eruptions create elements that can form rocky planets, much like Earth. Principal investigator Bob Gehrz of the University of Minnesota and collaborators have been...
