“This image, titled ‘Van Gogh from Space’ because of its evocation of Van Gogh’s “Starry Night,” shows phytoplankton swirling in the waters around Gotland island in the Baltic Sea. The photo was selected by the public as the first place winner in the USGS “Earth as Art” contest, commemorating the Landsat Earth-observing program’s 40th anniversary. Photo credit: USGS/NASA.”
