Us-Satellite Image-Great Barier Reef Featured 2001 Image

Us-Satellite Image-Great Barier Reef

This image taken from NASA's Earth Obeservatory Internet site shows the Great Barrier Reef, that extends for 1, 242 miles (2, 000 km) along the northeastern coast of Australia. It is not a single reef, but a vast maze of reefs, passages, and coral cays (islands that are part of the reef). This true-color image was acquired by the Multi-angle Imaging Spectroradiometer (MISR) instrument on August 26, 2000, and shows part of the southern portion of the reef adjacent to the central Queensland coast. The width of the MISR swath is approximately 236 miles (380 kilometers), with the reef clearly visible up to approximately 124 miles (200 kilometers) from the coast. The large island off the most northerly part of the coast visible in this image is Whitsunday Island, with smaller islands and reefs extending southeast, parallel to the coast.

US-JUPITER Featured 2001 Image

US-JUPITER

This true-color simulated view of Jupiter released 30 December, 2000 by NASA is composed of four images taken by NASA's Cassini spacecraft on 07 December, 2000. To illustrate what Jupiter would have looked like if the cameras had a field-of-view large enough to capture the entire planet, the cylindrical map was projected onto a globe. Cassini is a cooperative mission of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. JPL, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages Cassini for NASA's Office of Space Science in Washington, D.C. AFP PHOTO/NASA / AFP PHOTO / NASA / NASA

US-SATURN Featured 2001 Image

US-SATURN

This photo released by Nasa and the Hubble Heritage Team 07 June, 2001, shows a series of images of Saturn taken by the Hubble space Telescope from 1996 to 2000 showing the planet's rings as they move from autumn towards winter in its Northern Hemisphere. Saturn's equator is tilted relative to its orbit by 27 degrees, very similar to the 23-degree tilt of the Earth. The first image in this sequence (lower-L) was taken after the autumnal equinox in Saturn's Northern Hemisphere. By the final image in the sequence (upper-R), the tilt is nearing the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. Astronomers are studying this set of images to investigate the detailed variations in the color and brightness of the rings. The rings have a thickness of only about 30 feet (10 meters). The rings, as shown here, have a slight pale reddish color due to the presence of organic material mixed with the water ice.
