NASA's Earth Observatory is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and in that time is has given scientist and the general pubic a new view on the earth and how it is changing. The Earth Observatory site has satellite images of events on the earth ranging from storms and climate change to the growth of cities. The images are not only interesting to look at but they have helped scientist research the changing of seasons, snow caps, and cloud patterns in a whole new way. With growing popularity the images are also being sought out by other agencies, for example when the coast of Louisiana was hit by a hurricane the images were used to get a clearer picture of the flooding in the cities. Check out their archives, you will see awesome pictures and learn something new about the planet we live on.
