    High Definition Planet Earth Photo

    “A ‘Blue Marble’ image of the Earth taken from the VIIRS instrument aboard NASA’s most recently launched Earth-observing satellite – Suomi NPP.
    This composite image uses a number of swaths of the Earth’s surface taken on January 4, 2012. “

    Lovely Loops by NASA Goddard Photo and Video, on Flickr

    The upper one of a pair of new, solar active regions that just rotated into view of SDO offered a beautiful profile view of cascading loops spiraling above it (Jan. 15-16, 2012) following a solar flare eruption. These loop structures are made of superheated plasma, just one of which is the size of several Earths. With its ability to capture the Sun in amazing detail, SDO observed it all in extreme ultraviolet light.

    Earth From Mars by NASA Goddard Photo and Video, on Flickr

    This is the first image ever taken of Earth from the surface of a planet beyond the Moon. It was taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit one hour before sunrise on the 63rd Martian day, or sol, of its mission. (March 8, 2004)

    The image is a mosaic of images taken by the rover's navigation camera showing a broad view of the sky, and an image taken by the rover's panoramic camera of Earth. The contrast in the panoramic camera image was increased two times to make Earth easier to see.The inset shows a combination of four panoramic camera images zoomed in on Earth. The arrow points to Earth. Earth was too faint to be detected in images taken with the panoramic camera's color filters.

    Hubble's New Eyes: Butterfly Emerges from Stellar Demise in Planetary Nebula NGC 6302 by NASA Goddard Photo and Video, on Flickr

    Butterfly Emerges from Stellar Demise in Planetary Nebula NGC 6302

    This celestial object looks like a delicate butterfly. But it is far from serene. What resemble dainty butterfly wings are actually roiling cauldrons of gas heated to more than 36,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The gas is tearing across space at more than 600,000 miles an hour -- fast enough to travel from Earth to the moon in 24 minutes!

    The famous Race Track in Italy, I've passed this before when flying over and thought WTF!


    Italy by NASA Goddard Photo and Video, on Flickr

    The Nardò Ring is a striking visual feature from space, and astronauts have photographed it several times. The Ring is a race car test track; it is 12.5 kilometers long and steeply banked to reduce the amount of active steering needed by drivers.

    Has anyone been to Cape Canaveral?

    I went to Florida 7 years ago for an holiday and spent the day at Cape Canaveral, very interesting.
