It’s Earth Madness! Vote for Your Favorite Images of Our Home Planet

NASA’s Earth Observatory website has decided to join in on the bracketology fever that overtakes many US citizens during the month of March … but with science and not basketball. Instead of March Madness, it’s EARTH MADNESS! From March 4 through April 5, Earth Observatory fans can vote for their favorite images of the year. There are thirty-two images vying for the title, but only one can be the winner. This will be a head-to-head competition, whittling the total from 32 to 16 to 8 to 4 to 2 in a tournament of remote sensing science. The competition will be stiff in the four brackets — Earth at Night, Events, Data, and True-Color — so it is up to you to separate the winners from the losers. Check back each week to vote in the next round and help choose a winner.

Print a copy of the bracket, fill it out, and get that workplace pool going. Come back every Monday to vote and watch the results.

    I’m still trying to figure out how a picture of the sun is one of “the best Earth images of the year”.

    Hmm, do i see a topic interwoven into the images? If I remove any image representing that topic + the lights at night topic …. there are about 7 images left choose from, depending interpretation of an image (California = wild fires = ?)
    Oh well …
