I’ve always found beauty in the satellite imagery we work with every day.
Now, thanks to the Canadian Space Agency, everyone can see what I see.
Terris is proud to represent New Brunswick in the Canadian Space Agency’s digital exhibit Satellite Art: Celebrating Canada’s Beauty from Space, which features artistic renderings of 13 locations, one for each province and territory, that illustrates the art behind the science and technology of earth observation and remote sensing.
Our image, captured on March 17, 2021 and formatted by Jordan Cameron with incredible guidance from Ghasem Abdi, reveals the stunning beauty of northeastern New Brunswick, where Chaleur Bay meets the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Embedded and almost obscured in ice at its northeastern-most meeting point is Miscou Island, the winds, currents, and tides do their job of fracturing and melting the ice floes, careening them off the Bathurst and north shore areas, to send them spiraling into the Gulf.
To achieve this image Jordan accentuated the satellite image’s false-colour bands to produce a rich burgundy and magenta hue of vegetation-covered areas and a deep aqua-cyan of the frigid waters.
In addition to our depiction of Chaleur Bay, the exhibit features the following Canadian locations.
We’re proud to be featured with our fellow Canadian earth observation specialists. Please check out the Canadian Space Agency’s exhibit. I think you’ll agree that the view of Canada from space is magnificent.
