Our kaleidoscope Earth

Their dazzling colours and bizarre formations may be reminiscent of modern art, but these are actually images of the Earth’s surface.

Taken between 1999 and 2006, they form part of Nasa’s Earth Observatory project, which gathers images showing the Earth’s climatic and environmental change.

The Earth Art images are known as “false colour” photographs, so-called because filters are applied to the camera to highlight environmental phenomena for the benefit of researchers.
