Italy as you have never seen it, with the eyes of NASA

Italy seen from space, in 186 shots. For more than 20 years, NASA’s Earth Observatory has been publishing incredible stories and photographs from all over our planet. Now he has created a new way to explore them: by location, directly on the map.

And this is how, among thousands of shots, we can discover an Italy as we have never seen it before, including the natural events that have marked it in the last two decades, from earthquakes to the eruption of volcanoes. You can access the incredible archive by clicking here.

The nocturnal images are very suggestive, which allow us to look at our country through the eyes of the crew aboard the International Space Station or the Space Shuttle, which from their privileged point of view have “the possibility of seeing the planet transform from day to night in ways earthbound people rarely see. ‘ But the high definition nature photos are no less, from the Caldera Lakes north of Rome to Venice with its lagoon.

The map “was generated using data from NASA’s Modis Land Cover, the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission, the General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans and the Earth’s natural boundaries.” And it will be gradually implemented with the new shots that are published daily on the Earth Observatory website.
