NASA created a video tour of what Autumn looks like from the vantage point of space. The Agency gathered a collage of satellite imagery from Maine, northern China, the Appalachians, Romania, Utah, Sweden, Siberia, and Ellis Island to showcase the fall colors there. Whiie the global locations with their plant and tree species all vary, the biological process of converting green photosynthetic chlorophyll into shades of yellow, orange, gold, pink, and red Beta-carotenes is the same. It is a beautiful moment to observe and enjoy.
