VIRAL! ISRO Releases ‘Breathtaking’ PICS Of India From Space! Space Agency Stuns The Internet With First Images Of Earth Taken by OceanSat-3: ‘Feast For Eyes’
The new pictures of Earth from the OceanSat-3 have taken over the internet and were stunned to see the mesmerizing images of our planet
India never fails to surprise the world! The south-east Asian content is known for its culture, vibrance, food and lots more. But, that’s not all, the country looks ever more beautiful from space as well. The Oceansat-3, also known as the Earth Observation Satellite (EOS-06) has sent back breathtaking images of the planet using the Ocean Colour Monitor (OCM).
The new images have been taking over the world as the images were created using data that the National Remote Sensing Center (NRSC) received from the satellite, according to the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).
The data of 300GB contained a mosaic which combines 2,939 images. The high-resolution pictures included every content, and they captured Earth as it appeared between February 1 and February 15 of this year. India can be seen in some of the photographs shining brightly and clearly from orbit.

The Earth as viewed on February 1–15, 2023 is reported to be seen in the "Global False Colour Composite mosaic generated by NRSC/ISRO using photos from Ocean Colour Monitor on EOS-06 mosaic with 1 km spatial resolution," that combines 2939 images after processing 300 GB of data, suggests WION.
Interestingly, different continents appear in separate colours owing to the variations in the wavelengths. The images captured by the Ocean Colour Monitor provide information about global vegetation cover on land and ocean biota.

In another tweet, ISRO wrote, “OCM senses the Earth in 13 distinct wavelengths to provide information about global vegetation cover on Land and Ocean Biota for global oceans.”
The pictures have taken the internet by storm and internet users were stunned to see the mesmerizing images of our planet, especially India.
One user wrote, “A few things just make you feel proud of your country.” Another commented,” The Blue Planet in Earthy hues ! Beautiful images.” A third said, “Feast for eyes.” A fourth commented, “These pictures are mind blowing.”
Meanwhile, NASA recently shared a breathtaking old image of Earth at night that offered an excellent view of the patterns of human settlements around the world.
