A Breathing Earth

I found very interesting gifs created by John Nelson, a programmer at IDV Solutions Company, took pictures from NASA Visible Earth project, he collected 12 photos of our planet Earth taken at different time of the year, and made a Gif resulting in a short but fascinating animation which looking like “A Breathing Earth”.

Project details can be found on Nelson’s blog, In the animations it looks like our planet seems to be breathing, exhale and inhale throughout the year without stopping, is easily seen as the climate changes dramatically in North America, Europe and Russia, from white snow to green of spring and the continental wave of growing grasses in African plains. I am sure most of you would have never seen something like this.
