Earth Day : Earth Art

We wanted to plant a post to honor Earth Day, as well as Baltimore Green Week that is fast approaching. Uh, like next week. Get your green genes going.

So we thought we'd link you to the U.S Geological Society's (USGS) EROS program (this EROS site is a great resource, even for the non-Geo-sensitive). A segment of the EROS program is Landsat 7. This joint program between NASA and USGS sponsors a series of satellites with highly technical cameras (of course!). This series of satellites roams the skys and take pictures of the planet that can only be described as "earth art."

Hope you enjoy the beauty of this earth through these images of some of the most striking and exotic places on the planet. Wonk on!
