Earth as Art 4 (EAA4) comprises 37 stunning images captured by Landsat 8,
the newest Landsat Program satellite.
Landsat satellites acquire detailed views of the Earth’s surface that scientists use to determine how our planet’s landscapes are changing over time. In addition to their scientific value, however, many Landsat images are simply lovely to look at.
Forty-five new scenes developed for their aesthetic beauty, rather than for scientific value. The artists of this collection come from three sensors aboard satellites orbiting the Earth - Landsat 7, ASTER, and MODIS.
