Image of the Earth. This is a picture of the Earth's magnetic field and the Van Allen Belts. The Van Allen Belts are two layers where the atomic particles are trapped and the magnetosphere is dense. This is another image of the magnetosphere. Cada mes de abril celebramos el mes de la Tierra que culmina con el día de la Tierra el 22 de abril. La observación de la Tierra desde el espacio se ha convertido en una herramienta imprescindible para conocer el estado medioambiental del planeta. En esta imagen de recreada por un artista, los satélites se muestran con un tamaño desproporcionado para hacerlos visibles en esta escala. La Navidad de nos dejó un regalo muy especial en forma de fotografía. Por primera vez la humanidad pudo observar un amanecer de la Tierra desde el horizonte lunar. Era una imagen en blanco y negro, de poca definición, que la sonda Lunar Orbiter había obtenido utilizando un ordenadoruna técnica que, por entonces, estaba en sus comienzos. En dos de ellas podía verse en el cielo negro, por encima del horizonte lunar, laa forma resplandeciente de imagen de la tierra Tierra. La primera es del 23 de agosto dey sería conocida como Earthrise, la Tierra naciente o Salida de la Tierra.

Image of the Earth. This is a picture of the Earth's magnetic field and the Van Allen Belts. The Van Allen Belts are two layers where the atomic particles are trapped and the magnetosphere is dense. This is another image of the magnetosphere. Here you can see the interaction between the solar wind and the earth's magnetic field.
A temperature threshold was used to isolate the clouds. The land and sea were separated and then the clouds, land and sea were separately colored and combined back together to produce this image. The spacecraft was traveling between the Earth and the Moon. The redish landmass is Africa and Saudi Arabia which is desert. The white is both clouds and the ice covering Antarctica.
This image of the Earth was taken by the Galileo spacecraft at about 6: PST on December 11, The spacecraft was about 1. South America is near the center of the picture, and the white, sunlit continent of Antarctica is below. Picturesque weather fronts are visible in the South Atlantic, lower right.

This is the first picture of the whole Antarctic continent taken nearly at once from space. Galileo was about , kilometers , miles from Earth when the pictures were taken.
Courtesy Calvin J. The images were taken between May 24, and May 14, On false-color infrared mosaics, vegetation appears in red instead of green. The "redness" indicates vegetation density, type and whether growing on dry land or in a swamp.
Grasslands appear light red, deciduous trees and croplands appear red, and coniferous forests appear dark red or maroon. Desert areas appear white and urban areas appear bluish green. Lakes, rivers and oceans appear in various shades of blue, dark blue for deep water and light blue for shallow or turbid water.
This is an image of the sunrise from space over the South China Sea. An astronaut would see something like this; clearly defined bands of color through the atmosphere as the sun rises. High-peaking cumulus clouds, topping out in anvil-head cirrus can beseen as black shadows against the sunlit horizon. The brightness of the colors in the atmosphere in this photograph is due to the amount of dust in the atmosphere.
More dust is found in near the equator. There are various sources for such upper level dust. Many dust storms in Africa and ash clouds from major volcanic eruptions are two reasons. This is another satellite image taken of clouds. This is an image of a supercell. This occurs when cumulonimbus clouds quickly develop into powerful thunderstorm clouds.
They form when snowflakes and ice crystals fall from the high clouds. Courtesy of Ronald Holle, University of Illinois cloud catalog These are altocumulus clouds which appear to be puffy. This is another example of what a current weather map looks like. This is a rectangular map projection of the world This is a sinusoidal map projection of the world. This is an image of what a current minimum temperature map would look like.
This is an image of the globe where the continents black. The diameter is 1. Courtesy of D. It is partly buried under wind blown sand. Its crater rim rises 25 meters 82 feet above the land and the crater floor is 50 meters feet below the rim. Courtesy of V. They were formed at the same time by two separate but probably related meteorite impacts. This rarely occurs on Earth. The larger Clearwater Lake West left shows a ring of islands that has a diameter of about 10 kilometers 6 miles.
They constitute a raised area and are covered with impact melts. The central peak of the smaller Clearwater Lake East right is submerged. Scientists believe that a meteorite hit this area about 5 million years ago. The crater floor is coverd by sand dunes. Courtesy of W. The area shown is approximately This is a satellite image taken of Mount St.
This volcano erupted on May 18, in Washington. Courtesy of Volcano World? This is a false color image of Mount Pinatuba in the Philippines. In the June eruptions, the main crater was produced and the red shows the rougher ash deposits.
The dark drainages are the dangerous mudflows, called "lahars", which are started by heavy rains and will be a major hazard in the area for many years.
It is one of the most active volcanoes on earth and has erupted 15 times since Shasta volcano in California. It is the second highest mountain in the Cascade Range. It is unusual because it has a lot of seaweed growing in it and floating on the surface.
The water is very blue, warm, salty and clear with slowmoving currents but surrounded by much faster currents like the Gulf Stream. Geological Survey This is an image of topography under the sea. These are two images of surface elevations in the oceans using two models. Desert Spiny Anteaters are one of the few mammals that lay eggs.

The Grand Canyon is the largest canyon in the world and was cut by the Colorado River over millions of years. Some parts are almost a mile deep. Another image of Grand Canyon. Yosemite National Park. Alexander This is an image of the Gulf of Mexico.
It is the largest gulf and covers an area of , square miles. It is the largest desert in the world and covers most of the northern third of Africa. It is over miles long and marks the boundary between two plates. The plates are sliding by each other about two inches per year. This is a satellite image of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. This is an image of Mount Everest in the Himalaya range of Asia. It is the highest mountain above sea level - 29, feet.

Las mejores fotos históricas de la Tierra desde el espacio
El satélite de televisión observacional infrarrojo TIROS, sigla es inglés 1 fue el primer satélite en observar el clima. TIROS 1 fue operable por sólo 78 días, pero demostró que se podía monitorear las nubes del Planeta Tierra y el clima de otros planetas. En esta fotografía observamos la primera imagen de televisión del TIROS, tomada desde una altitud de kilómetros. La fotografía de arriba es la primera imagen que se tomó de la Tierra desde la Luna.
