The Solar System

DESCRIPTION: The third of four pages on The Solar System (one of the Field Nodes comprising the subject tree of The Telson Spur), this page is a list of links to on-line resources related to the study of the Earth as a planet (including Earth observation and lunar science). The coordinate pages, with a common header and List of Contents, contain links to on-line resources for the study of the solar system in general (including solar physics and planetary science), of the other planets, and of small bodies (asteroids, comets, and meteors).

KEYWORDS: Earth; earth observation; remote sensing; webcam; Moon; selenology; selenography

Earth as a Planet

Earth Observation
The Moon

Would you know our planet's value?
View the star-strewn dome of night!
In that shoreless sea of splendor
What is one faint wave of light?

Worlds by millions are revolving
Through that vast, unfathomed main;
Should our tiny orb make shipwreck,
Worlds by millions would remain...

Earth Observation

Web Cameras

Once a photograph of the Earth, taken from the outside, is available -- once the sheer isolation of the Earth becomes plain -- a new idea as powerful as any in history will be let loose.
Fred Hoyle, 1948 (NB The Home icon in the upper and lower left corners of this and other pages on this site is a GIF image based on a photograph of the whole Earth taken from Apollo 17, outward bound, in December 1972.)

When you look out the other way toward the stars you realize it's an awful long way to the next watering hole.
Loren W. Acton (STS 51/F, Challenger 8, July 1985)

There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world.
Carl Sagan (on the image of Earth -- "a pale blue dot in a sunbeam" -- taken by Voyager 1 from beyond the orbit of Neptune on 14 February 1990)
