Everybody loves an Easter egg hunt right? NASA this year is having its very own Easter-themed remote-sensing-themed egg hunt using satellites.
Earth Matters is blog belonging to the Earth Observatory branch of NASA that uses satellites to study Earth through satellite images, and in the past it has offered up plenty of intriguing stuff. They often have challenges for their fans and readers which include guessing games involving strange images. Their Easter egg hunt is much the same, but instead of “eggs” they write that they’re dealing with “colorful, egg-like shaped ponds”.
The first part of their challenge is to guess the location of the lakes in the image they’ve provided on their blog (above). The second part of the challenge is to discover other satellite images of Earth that have odd egg-shaped water bodies and upload them to the website’s blog by commenting on their post with the image and the latitude and longitude of the place you’ve found.
