Planet Earth on the Fourth Plinth for W4

A new w4th plinth artwork went up on Saturday, without fanfare as we didn’t think the artist would attend…

The Earth by Artist Unknown.

Planet Earth photographed from Suomi NPP. Over a period of six orbits, the Suomi NPP satellite provided the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument enough time to gather the pixels for this synthesized view of Earth showing North Africa and southwestern Europe.

With thanks to NASA. Image nominated by Felicity Goodall.

Entries are now open for 2022.
