This computer-generated image shows the EOS-AM1 Spacecraft, with the MISR instrument on board, orbiting Earth. Direction of flight is toward the lower left. The actual locations imaged by the 9 cameras, each with 4 color bands, along the Earth's surface are illustrated here with translucent surfaces. The background star field is also realistic.
