Congratulations to the MCubed-2 team for the first successful image of Earth.  Below, there is a fantastic, snow-covered picture of Lake Superior, the upper peninsula of Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Canada.  The deep freeze of the Midwest is clearly visible.

MC2 captured a snow covered Midwest today, her first photo downloaded from the mission.

Prof. Washabaugh, on seeing the picture, asked if the camera was black and white.  We all laughed saying, “Nope, that’s just space and snow!”

This photo is for Kiko and that original MCubed-1 team. Here is your space selfie.  We’ll work on some SoCal shots later.

Go Blue!
