Wisconsin in autumn, October 7, 2010. In this true color image from NASA's Aqua satellite it is possible to see the orange colors of the changing foliage in northern Wisconsin and sediments in the southern waters of Lake Michigan, stirred by wind. This image is one of several dozen included in an exhibit, Satellites See Wisconsin, to run at the Dane County Regional Airport from Feb. 11 - Sept. 9, 2011, organized by UW-Madison's Tandem Press and the UW-Madison Space Science and Engineering Center.

A satellite view of Madison, Wis. Taken by the commercial satellite IKONOS, which can take pictures from space comparable to airborne photos taken from fixed wing aircraft. The image here, which blends 4-meter resolution color imagery with 1-meter resolution black and white imagery, is similar to what is now used by Google Earth and Google Maps. This image is one of several dozen included in an exhibit, Satellites See Wisconsin, to run at the Dane County Regional Airport from Feb. 11 - Sept. 9, 2011, organized by UW-Madison's Tandem Press and the UW-Madison Space Science and Engineering Center.

This view of the Western Hemisphere, taken Oct. 27, 2010, captures the large mid-latitude storm that, as it intensified over the Great Lakes, set a record low pressure for the continental United States at Superior, Wis. The system generated two days of extremely high winds gusting to 50-60 miles per hour. This image is one of several dozen included in an exhibit, Satellites See Wisconsin, to run at the Dane County Regional Airport from Feb. 11 - Sept. 9, 2011, organized by UW-Madison's Tandem Press and the UW-Madison Space Science and Engineering Center.
