The NASA Earth Observatory is ten years old (this is where I get many of the images I show on The GeoChristian). For most of that time, EO has featured a new image every day, for a total of over 3,000 fantastic images of the Earth (mostly).
EO is asking for its viewers to vote for their favorite images:
Vote for Your Favorite Image of the Day
In celebration of our anniversary, we want to hear which Images of the Day have impressed you most over the past ten years. Tell us what you have found most beautiful, most fascinating, or most unusual by voting for your favorites. Voting will be in two rounds:
- In Round 1 (March 31-April 13), you can vote for images from the entire Image of the Day catalog. We know it can be hard to pick just one, so each user can choose up to 10 favorite images per day. Each day, you can come back and cast ten more votes—either for the same images you picked before, or a totally new set of ten.
- In Round 2 (April 14-27), you can select your number one favorite Image of the Day from the top vote getters from Round 1.
On April 29, we will announce our readers’ 10 Favorite Images of the Day!
It was fairly easy to pick about thirty favorite images, but it was difficult to narrow it down to my top ten. Here are my ten picks, in no particular order:
Ocean Sand, Bahamas — 9/13/2002
