A Closer Look at LDCM's First Scene
Turning on new satellite instruments is like opening new eyes. The Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) released its first images of Earth, collected at 1:40 p.m. EDT on March 18. The first image shows the meeting of the Great Plains with the Front Ranges of the Rocky Mountains in Wyoming and Colorado. Click and drag the slider bar to compare these LDCM images, which zoom into the area around Fort Collins, Colorado. Popcorn clouds dot the plains while more complete cloud cover obscures the mountains. A dark wildfire burn scar from the Galena Fire is visible just to the left of the reservoir. The scar shows up bright, rusty red in the false color image. Credit: USGS/NASA Earth Observatory
