Earth As Art - planetarne apstrakcije

Zemlja iz satelita ne izgleda pejzažno, ekološki ili organski, nego poput platna za beskrajne apstraktne slike. NASA je objavila knjigu satelitskih fotografija primjereno nazvanu Zemlja kao umjetnost.
Čudesne boje.

Earth As Art
Image credit: NASA
In 1960, the United States put its first Earth-observing environmental satellite into orbit around the planet. Over the decades, these satellites have provided invaluable information, and the vantage point of space has provided new perspectives on Earth. This book celebrates Earth’s aesthetic beauty in the patterns, shapes, colors, and textures of the land, oceans, ice, and atmosphere. The book features 75 stunning images of Earth from the Terra, Landsat 5, Landsat 7, EO-1, and Aqua satellites. Sensors on these satellites can measure light outside of the visible range, so the images show more than what is visible to the naked eye. The images are intended for viewing enjoyment rather than scientific interpretation. The beauty of Earth is clear, and the artistry ranges from the surreal to the sublime.
