Earth as Art

If I were a painter, I think I’d paint these. We often see images of the earth from space, but how much detail can you really see? Honestly. Some blue for water, some green for grass…. These false color images show every distinct detail not quite as you normally imagine them, but in a way that is stunning. Check it out.

False color imaging is a technique that uses infrared-sensitive film. That’s about all I can tell you. Something about heat.

(My favorite image is Mount Elgon)
