[AWESOME VIDEO] The Earth as You've Never Seen it Before: Atmosphere, Airglow and Aurora

A truly powerful image generates questions. The incredible night photos and time-lapse movies NASA has been sharing with us provoke questions about our planet.

 

Awesome movie!

Desert Air, by George Steinmetz #socialmedia #Earth's #beauty

Posted by George Steinmetz on September 28, 2012

 

"For the past fifteen years George has been working on a somewhat obsessive project to photograph all of the world's hyper arid regions. The idea came to him when he started flying his motorized paraglider over the Sahara in the late 90s, and has taken him to 27 countries plus Antarctica. What he found on this oddyssey was a collection of co-evolved landscapes, like a disparate family, with each desert having unique variations on the common dry-land features of sand dunes, salt lakes, and wind erosion. He also discovered the highly developed strategies that allow man, vegetation, and wildlife to endure on the outer limits of survival."
