The internet is a double-edged sword, and we know that very well, so much so that sometimes something as simple as a GIF can affect us greatly no matter how simple it is. And that's what happened with a GIF created by the Polish visual artist named Feliks Konczakowski, which shows us a satellite approach that as in google maps is giving you a clearer picture of what is actually in the location. The problem? You approach but you never get to see in more detail. Folks it is a slow news day.
Launched last November 19 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, the satellite now known as GOES-16 can now observe planet Earth from a geostationary orbit 22,300 miles above the equator. Its Advanced Baseline Imager captured this contrasting view of Earth and a gibbous Moon on January 15. Source: GOES-16: Moon over Planet Earth
