Ah, the beauty of satellite images! Agriculture or cultural landscape looks amazing from above. Interesting history behind the geometry of the US is mentioned in this article. 
From above the geometry of rural America looks like an aesthetic dream. Especially when you look at the gorgeous satellite shots of square mile patches of land that were put op on the Instagram account @the.jefferson.grid.

In astronomy, amateurs have contributed to the knowledge production for not only decades, but centuries actually! :-)
 
Pro-Am Tour

Long before the term "citizen science" was coined, the field of astronomy has benefited from countless men and women who study the sky in their spare time. These amateur astronomers devote hours exploring the cosmos through a variety of telescopes that they acquire, maintain, and improve on their own. Some of these amateur astronomers specialize in capturing what is seen through their telescopes in images and are astrophotographers. 

What happens when the work of amateur astronomers and astrophotographers is combined with the data from some of the world's most sophisticated space telescopes? These four composite images of galaxies reveal the possibilities. These galaxies are M101, also known as the "Pinwheel Galaxy", M81, Centaurus A, and M51, or, the "Whirlpool Galaxy". This Astro Pro-Am collaboration intends to raise interest and awareness among the amateur astronomer/astrophotographer community of the wealth of data publicly available, such as in NASA's various mission archives. This effort is particularly appropriate for this month because April marks Global Astronomy Month, the world's largest global celebration of astronomy. 

For many amateur astronomers and astrophotographers, a main goal of their efforts is to observe and share the wonders of the Universe. However, the long exposures of these objects may also help to reveal phenomena that may otherwise be missed in the relatively short snapshots taken by major telescopes, which are tightly scheduled and often oversubscribed by professional astronomers. Therefore, projects like Astro Pro-Am might one day prove useful not only for producing spectacular images, but also contributing to the knowledge of what is happening in each of these cosmic vistas.

Thank you +Rajini Rao It is an amazing place! The flower you see is a 'regular' Valerian. Can cure hysteria which I find hysteric! hahaha The more effective Valeriana officinalis will definitely do the trick! :-)

A beautiful blue version of the Helix nebula!
 
This is the Helix nebula, as seen in ultraviolet light. It is a star like our sun but at the very end of its life. The star is a small dot in the center, surrounded by billowy layers of expelled material.

What do you think this car got to do with citizen science? Watch my channels the coming days and I will let you know!

PS. It is a Sony Ericsson Bluetooth CAR-100 model, in case you geeks wondered 😄

Europe and Africa focused view of planet Earth - an image made by NASA. You can also see the Americas view via this link if you prefer. It is the Earth as seen from afar. A lovely place - for the most part - after all. 
Africa is front and center in this image of Earth taken by a NASA camera on the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite.

Positioning is always useful. In some cases pivotal  and life saving.
