Image Narration | Shadow of the Earth
Image Narration | Shadow of the Earth by Steve Wofsy, Principal Investigator
Listen to Steve Wofsy, HIPPO Principal Investigator, narrate how this picture shows the shadow of the Earth in the Arctic.
This image shows the shadow of the Earth as it's reflected off of little ice particles that are in the Arctic atmosphere. In the sunset, anywhere in the country if the air is very clear and you look to the east you can sometimes see the shadow of the Earth, but this angle and this very cold atmosphere makes a particularly dramatic shot. And underneath you see the Alaska Range, which is obviously very forbidding and in many respects very starkly beautiful at this time of year.
