EPIC Earth

So awesome it’s EPIC for real!  A new website was launched by NASA that shows the full sunlit side of the Earth – everyday.  Yes everyday the NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) will take a series of 10 images of the Earth every day and NASA will post them 12 to 36 hours later.  The images are taken by a NASA camera one million miles away on the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR), a partnership between NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Air Force.

See the images.

Visit the DISCOVR mission site.
