Wired magazine is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Envisat--the European Space Agency's satellite--with these great images. This image shows six of the Hawaiian islands--Hawaii, Kahoolawe, Maui, Lanai, Molokai, and Oahu. @megumi kt Maris
*home* The Hawaiian Islands- This Envisat radar image features 6 of Hawaii’s 8 major volcanic islands. Visible from right to left are the Big Island of Hawaii, Kahoolawe, Maui, Lanai, Molokai & Oahu. This image was created by combining three Envisat ASAR acquisitions (March 27, 2006, April 16, 2007 & Jan. 21, 2008) taken over the same area. The colors in the image result from variations in the surface that occurred between acquisitions.
