1,000,000 mile Year long Earth Timelapse


Last year NASA launched it’s Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite with an EPIC camera on board.  It’s stayed on the Lagrange 1 point, 1,000,000 miles from the earth towards the sun.  Lagrange points are interesting aspects of space, I’ll let you learn about it on your own time.  Taking a photo every 2 hours for a year gives a great perspective of the planet.  I never knew that there was so much cloud cover across the planet so often.  It’s also really neat seeing the tilt of the planet while Africa moves across the plane of view.
