Now you can see the images of Earth as it rotates on Nasa’s newly launched website. The US Space Agency will post the images of Earth once a day captured 12-36 hours ago by Nasa’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera, also called EPIC. You can also find an archive of EPIC images available on the website.
EPIC is a 10-channel spectroradiometer (317-780 nm) onboard NOAA’s DSCOVR (Deep Space Climate Observatory) spacecraft one million miles away. EPIC provides 10 narrow band spectral images of the entire sunlit face of the Earth using a 4 megapixel CCD (Charge Coupled Device) detector couples to a 30 cm aperture Cassegrain telescope.
