Volcanoes. Auroras. Megafans. Fishing boats. From 250 miles up, astronauts frequently experience a profound paradigm shift when looking down at our home planet. In honor of both NASA's 20 years of continuous human presence on the ISS and Earth Day 2021, this webinar will explore how astronauts continue a rich 60+-year photography tradition through Crew Earth Observations (CEO), capturing planetary change due to human factors and natural events. Relevant instructional resources will also be included.
