DSCOVR – one year of EPIC images

December 8, 2017


NASA’s EPIC camera aboard NOAA’s DSCOVR satellite recorded a full year of life on Earth from its orbit at Lagrange point 1, approximately 1 million miles from Earth. The colors shown are the best estimate of what a human sitting at the location of EPIC would see. EPIC takes at least one set of images about every two hours. The camera records each set in 10 different wavelengths. At least three separate wavelengths–red, green, and blue–are combined to produce this color view.

    I looked round the back to make sure it isn’t flat and all that’s there is some cables and chewed chewing gum that looks familiar. Did you know that beyond the 2 dimensions we’re familiar with from ootoobs is theorized, never observed, a mysterious 3rd dimension !!!

    140s for 365 days = 2.6 days/s average
    Hurricane Danny a Category 3 hurricane on August 21 maybe at :31
    Hurricane Joaquin a Category 4 hurricane on October 1 maybe at :51
    The Pacific cyclones look clearer. Should search for records of those some time
