Coronal Loops Over a Sunspot Group
NASA Image Of The Day
The Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) instrument on NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory images the solar atmosphere in multiple wavelengths to link changes in the surface to interior changes. When AIA images are sharpened a bit, such as this AIA 171 channel image, the magnetic field can be readily visualized through the bright, thin strands that ar...

  • Proba-V maps world air traffic from space

    As ESA’s Proba-V works quietly on its main task of monitoring vegetation growth across Earth, the minisatellite is also picking up something from a little higher: signals from thousands of aircraft.

  • Join the virtual classroom

    Registration is open for a free online course that provides an introduction to monitoring climate change using satellite Earth observation.

  • Land shifts in Nepal

    The Sentinel-1A satellite has given us a clearer picture of the ground deformation caused by the 25 April earthquake in Nepal

  • Nepal earthquake on the radar

    On 25 April, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, claiming over 5000 lives and affecting millions of people. Satellite images are being used to support emergency aid organisations, while geo-scientists are using satellite measurements to analyse the effects of the earthquake on the land.
