Summary:These satellite maps show different observations made of the Earth under the theme of land, ocean, water, energy, and life. NASA's Blue Marble: Next Generation images show Earth in true color. The images show how the surface would look to a human in space if our world had no clouds and no atmosphere. NASA's Terra satellite collected these images. There is one Blue Marble image for each month of the year 2004. These images allow us to explore changes on Earth's lands over time. Notice how the patterns of green (trees and plants), brown (exposed land surface), and white (snow) change from winter through spring, summer, and fall.
