Autumn From Space

Autumn From Space

NASA created a video collage of what Autumn looks like from a satellite in space.

The space agency gathered imagery from Maine, northern China, the Appalachians, Romania, Utah, Sweden, Siberia, and Ellis Island to showcase Autumn colors from these diverse landscapes. While the locations and their plants all vary, the biological process of converting green chlorophyll into shades of yellow, orange, gold, pink, and red Beta-carotenes is the same.

Fall is a beautiful time to observe and enjoy the plants and trees all around you.
