U.S. library to put satellite Earth images on display
WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. Geological Survey has collected dozens of images of Earth as viewed from space for a new art exhibit at the Library of Congress in Washington.
The library says cloud formations, coastlines, mountain ranges, glaciers and other formations produce striking textures and colors, like those used in abstract art, when viewed from space.
"Earth as Art" opens Tuesday at the library's exhibition hall, outside the Geography and Map Reading Room in the James Madison Building. It is composed of 40 award-winning satellite images. They will become part of the library's permanent collection.
The exhibit is free and open to the public Mondays through Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
