ABCs from Earth Orbit

The NASA Earth Observatory posted a fun compilation of images of the Earth from orbit which appear to display letters of the roman alphabet.

Adam Voiland includes links with each image, so you can learn more about what you see, how the data was collected, and other significant points.

I’ll leave it as an exercise for the reader to decide if there is anything deeper in these images. (Hint: turn your screen upside down and watch the letters disappear.)
