Amazing New Video of Our Planet

A great series of images from Russian weather satellite, Elektro-L! The weather satellite’s image used data based on wavelengths of visible and infrared light. This means vegetation red-brown, and less vegetation is green – kind of opposite to what you might think at first glance. Images are from a single point 35,000 kilometers over the Indian Ocean. They were taken every 30 minutes, then combined by educator James Drake to show a day in the life of the planet. Photos were from the Russian Research Center for Earth Operative Monitoring.

I found this here.
