EARTH OBSERVATORY

Yahoo Science today publicized NASA’s site that contains hundreds of high-resolution pictures of Earth from space, some of them so remarkably detailed you can pick out individual streets and houses. It’s called Earth Observatory and it would be doing it a gross disservice to use a thumbnail shot in this post to exemplify its contents. Just go visit it, see the smoke trail from the Staten Island refinery fire (click on the ‘large view’ link), or the Etna eruption, or the Australian bush fires. These photos are breathtaking. I’m hanging up my Nikon.
