From the vantage point of L1, DSCOVR’s EPIC camera has captured its first EPIC’s first view of a full Earth from the Sun-Earth L1 point. We are excited to begin registration for the EPIC (Earth science Project International Collaborative) Workshop. The meeting will focus on. Images of the Earth from DSCOVR:EPIC allow us to explore the Earth as though it were an exoplanet. [Adapted from Jiang et al. ].

Seraph — I think perhaps what’s happening is that you are taking “perfect sphere” less less literally than Neil deGrasse Tyson is. Retrieved April 2, The Moon transiting Earth, July 16, The processes that led to glaciation at the cratered poles of Mercury, the planet closest to the sun, have been modeled by a University of Maine-led research team.

The moon is approximatelymiles away from Earth but this shot was taken at a distance of 1.

The Web feature on this image goes into great detail about how it was created. The Plasma- Magnetometer PlasMag measures solar wind for space weather predictions.

Here is one list that I found showing how wavelengths of light correspond to different perceived color.

DSCOVER is orbiting the sun, about a million miles closer to it than Earth is, which normally would mean it would have a shorter orbital time, but because it is positioned directly arth the two, the Earth’s gravity compensates for some of the Sun’s gravity, effectively reducing the Sun’s pull and allowing DSCOVER to orbit at almost the exact same angular speed as Earth.

From his statements on February 1, at 92nd Street Y, he indeed lead me to believe the Earth was less spherical than oblate.

Representative from Tennessee — Born March 31, These images, available 12 to 36 hours after they are acquired, will be posted to a dedicated web page by September Why don’t we have thousands of these “blue marble” pics?

These initial Earth images show the effects of sunlight scattered by air molecules, giving the images a characteristic bluish tint. We recently got shots of Pluto which is “4.

EPIC provides a daily series of Earth images, enabling the first-time study of daily variations over the entire globe. Become a member of The Planetary Society and together we will create the future of space exploration.

Spying on Iran and N. Ms Lakdawalla, Thank you for your clarification. Human color perception involves signals from receptors in our eyes being interpreted by the brain. This page was last edited on 9 Decemberat Adjust slider to filter visible comments by rank.

On Saturn, epid seasons can mean changes in the haziness—and color—of the skies. In November the satellite was removed from storage and began recertification for a possible launch on board a Delta II or a Falcon 9. But the EPIC instrument is equally sensitive to all of the filter settings. Szabo told me that EPIC takes images once every 1.

Two epic photos of Earth — but which one is truer? | The Planetary Society

Retrieved September 10, This Earth image shows the effects of sunlight scattered by air peic, giving the image a characteristic bluish tint. Furthermore, the DSCOVR EPIC team’s goal for its Earth photos is explicitly to create images that simulate what the human eye would see; they “reduce the contribution of blue and slightly change red” in order to simulate human color perception.

An often-cited result of Earth’s equatorial bulge is that the highest point on Earth, measured from the center outwards, is the peak of Mount Chimborazo in Ecuador, rather than Mount Everest. In the documentary An Inconvenient Sequel: Lagrangian points are locations of gravitational equilibrium between two bodies. Retrieved February 3, SpaceX reusable launch system development program.
