Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center have created a collection of visualizations of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with a camera high above the Earth, they rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly you find ourselves floating in virtual space just above the ground in Central Park!
