The Best Earth Images: A 2013 Calendar Collection
The Milky Way- Outer Space | Jan 8 2013 | (23:09:12 - EDT)
GeoEye celebrates 12 years of snapping images from outer space in one stunning 2013 calendar. GeoEye, which continually snaps Earth images with its Ikonos and GeoEye-1 satellites, has a lovely new calendar series you can download to keep track of the new year.
The company chose one image a year since 1999, the year Ikonos launched, and overlaid a 2013 calendar on it. Check out their gallery for a preview, or click above the article for a slideshow, previewing some of the best Earth images from the series of photographs, descriptions included.
A committee of GeoEye employees were tapped to offer suggestions for each year, following a set of criteria. The Earth images had to be iconic, historic, or “just stunning,” according to a company spokesman. The calendar team narrowed down images and all the imaging company employees voted on the selections to narrow them down to one image per year. But the company couldn’t resist including a couple honorable mentions, too.
