I've almost quit going to the Mail but thought I would check it out today. Sometimes you find something interesting on their site, and I think I did today. Check out these pictures if I had the current version of flash i would upload them, but the best I can do is a link.
Anyway I think its worth a looksee. Very beautiful.

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. Death Valley is breathtaking from space. Lots of minerals on view there. A Geologists dream! I don't think it is as pretty in real life, the scale makes all the different colors hard to see when your in it, as opposed to sailing over it in space.

I was pleasantly surprised. Does anyone else see a circle there in the one of the Colorado Great Sand Dunes? Crater impact maybe? Am I a discoverer?

It's pretty green but that's a false color image, as are most or all of them.

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.

Thanks for the website,
Phage and have certainly bookmarked it, and will definately visit it. I guess alot of stuff like that is touched up. I'm no photographer or computer wiz, but I know there are tricks. Stands to reason.
