Last month I wrote a post about the first image of our planet from space called Earthrise. Today I learned that a satellite called DSCOVR, launched in 2015, monitors space weather and earth science. As part of that process, it photographs the entire circle of Earth every day! An article on the Visual Culture web site details the history of this satellite, the dream of Al Gore, which sat in storage from 2001 to 2009. You can see a slideshow of the most recent pictures on the NASA web site, along with lots of other data. Take a look!
