A perfect cloud frame for the South Island. Way too much algae blooming from the Nitrogen runoff in Canterbury. 😬 (MODIS Terra 29-May-2022)

@arin_basu Yeah, unfortunately that usually means algae blooms and fish kills 😢

Things are by now really getting bad. A Marlborough farm had to close down salmon farming because of warming water in Pelorous Sound. Then the nitrogen issue in Canterbury plains.
Your satellite picture is excellent!

@arin_basu Thank this old girl... She's been quietly taking open source daily images of the whole earth for 20 years now 😍. Her and her sister 🛰 Aqua are quite the team in Earth Observation. Operating WAY outside their expected mission length too.

This is the Mastadon server. started in 1999 as a community of likeminded people interested in open discourse about technology, arts, culture, and a better world. The domain is inspired by Robert Rauschenberg's Combine Monogram. We got inspired, around 1994, by Monogram through the documentary series "The Shock of the New" where Robert Hughes discusses pop art and its influences on modern culture. The community around has continued a sort of Flex Seminar through online forums and other activities over the years.
