Make Magazine’s weblog has an article today on Nasa’s Blue Marble.

It seems Nasa has taken it upon themselves to provide a season-changing flyover of the world. Watch this video (my favorite) cycle through the equivalent of 4 years seasons while you fly from the Gulf of Mexico to New England. This short video must be the coolest thing since Google Earth.

Even more dramatic is the video of the Alps, but the video that will change how you picture our planet is the main tour, which pans over a major portion of the globe over several years worth of seasons.

Check out NASA’s page on The Blue Marble for more info, some high resolution satellite photos, and more.

What next? I’d like to see Google Earth offer the ability to dial a season when flying around.

Thanks to Make Magazine for posting this.
