Landsat Viewer

Not really forgotten, but it wasn’t in recent memory either.
I found this link last year to the Landsat Viewer, and wanted to be sure it was still working before I visit Shelby’s science class next week to talk about satellites… Pretty cool. I grabbed a piece today from the TN/NC border near Virginia.

previously live landsat image stream

from a 'Live' Landsat7 image stream

When the satellite stream is not AOS, the viewer sends replays of previous passes. Almost as good as watching out the window of the International Space Station….(well – probably as close as I’ll ever get…).
Enjoy /;^)
