About Looking @ Earth:
The Looking at Earth gallery first opened to the public May 8, 1986 in the National Air and Space Museum on the Mall in Washington, D.C. It documents the changing ways that we have viewed our planet from above. This online version is part of an ongoing effort by the NASM web site to create a "virtual" representation of each of the physical galleries of the museum. Each completed online gallery brings as much information as possible from the the physical gallery to the internet visitor. Prints and digital copies of the images presented in Looking @ Earth online are not available to the public due to copyright permissions.

Using the Online Gallery:
Looking @ Earth online contains JavaScripts and frames that have been optimized for Netscape 4.x/6 or Internet Explorer 5/6. To view the caption of a thumbnail image with no associated text, place the mouse over the thumbnail, and the caption text will be visible in the yellow box in the upper right hand corner of the window. Clicking on a thumbnail image will display a larger version of the image. Visitors using other browsers may want to go to the non-frames version of this gallery
