Now you can learn more about how Remote Sensing and Citizen Science go together at an online introductory webinar series provided by NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET).
Earth, Sky Watching, Citizen Science
A flash of lightning, and then – something else. High above the storm, a crimson figure blinks in and out of existence. If you saw it, you are a lucky witness of a sprite, one of the least-understood electrical phenomena in Earth’s upper atmosphere. But if you caught it on camera, your photo could... Read More
Participate in the NASA GLOBE Trees Challenge from Oct 11-Nov 11, 2022! Join us on Oct. 11 for a kick-off webinar!
Today we’re saying thank you to everyone who has pitched in to classify wildlife photos at snapshotwisconsin.org. Over the last four years you helped scientists model species distributions, measure vegetation phenology, study how deer use habitats to escape extreme temperatures, and much more.... Read More
When the 10,000th observation was submitted to Mountain Rain or Snow on the morning of March 15th, wet snow was falling on much of the Sierra Nevada. The National Weather Service was predicting slick mountain passes and possible delays due to rain for commuters in the city, but Mountain Rain or... Read More
It's almost Earth Day – looking for ways to celebrate? Show you care by becoming a NASA citizen scientist! Our citizen science programs are collaborations with NASA scientists and members of the public.
The FjordPhyto citizen science project has joined the NASA family! This project is a collaboration between researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California San Diego (USA) and tour vessel members of the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators.
Sun, Earth’s Space Environment, Earth
Sometimes the electrons in the upper atmosphere clump up and form giant waves larger than Texas that zip around the Earth faster than a jet plane! A team of researchers from the NASA/NSF-supported Ham Radio Science Citizen Investigation (HamSCI) led by Nathaniel Frissell at The University of... Read More
Have you ever noticed snow falling when the air temperature is above freezing? Your eyes aren’t deceiving you! Temperatures near freezing can bring rain or snow, posing a real challenge for water managers who need to know how much precipitation falls as what type. More accurately predicting rain vs...

Citizen science is a great way to study our beautiful planet. We are #ConnectedByEarth.
Astronauts onboard the International Space Station mention the importance of citizen science to studying Earth’s climate.
