Aura/OMI 3D Stereoscopic Viewfinder Image

The Aura satellite launched on July 15, 2004 from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California and is still operating successfully today. One of several instruments onboard is the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI). OMI is a contribution of the Netherland's Agency for Aerospace Programs (NIVR) along with the Finnish Meteorlogical Institute (FMI). OMI monitors the Earth's atmosphere for total ozone and other atmospheric parameters related to ozone chemistry and climate. This stereoscopic artistic rendition was created from a previous animation and is intended for viewing through a special NASA Earth Science Viewfinder available through NASA Headquarters. We include an anaglyph version here in addition to a printable viewfinder version, as well as the individual left eye and right eye views.
