Landsat satellites view the Earth through a number of different bands. Each band captures imagery in different spectral wavelengths. Scientists can then combine these bands a number of ways to obtain information about the satellite imagery. These still images show several different band combinations alongside the resulting imagery over the Florida Everglades.

These still images were produced for use on NASA travelling exhibits.
