A breathtaking gallery of images, taken from miles above the Earth, has emerged from a NASA space satellite, looking down at America's national parks.The parks stretch across the country, covering an array of natural phenomenon, from fjords to swamps to volcanoes. Also pictured is Grand Teton National Park, which covers 484 square miles of Wyoming, and features the Grand Teton mountain, standing at 13,770 feet tall.

Unexpected. How green is Hawaii? Shockingly so.
After many cloud-covered days, NASA’s Advanced Land Imager (ALI) on the Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite captured a false-color image of the area (top) on March 18, 2011. A similar view from January 16, 2010, is provided for comparison.
In the image—which depicts mostly infrared wavelengths of light—vegetation is green, older lava flows are brown to black, and “hot” areas are red. In this case, the scorched land in the burn scar appears slightly red and brown, the still-burning forest fire appears bright red, and bare lava is black or very dark purple. In the 2010 image, bright red, active lava flows stand out within and near Pu’u ’O’o.
