Alphabets in natural formations snapped from outer space 01-16


Alphabets in natural formations snapped from outer space










This is the alphabet as you've never seen it before - in natural formations snapped from outer space

The formations, resembling different letters of the alphabet, were captured by a combination of Nasa satellites and International Space Station astronauts
As far as the alphabet goes, this version is out of this world.

These images, snapped by Nasa satellites orbiting Earth and astronauts on the International Space Station, show natural formations resembling each of the alphabet's 26 letters.

From valleys and snow-covered mountains in Tibet to meteorite craters in Mauritania, the project is the brainchild of Adam Voiland, from the Nasa Earth Observatory.

It began after he noticed a satellite image of a wildfire smoke plume over Canada, which looked distinctly like the letter V, two years ago.
He said: "I wondered whether it would be possible to track down all 26 letters of the English alphabet using only Nasa satellite imagery and astronaut photography.

"With the help of colleagues, I started collecting images of ephemeral features like clouds, phytoplankton blooms, and dust clouds that formed shapes reminiscent of letters.

"Some of the letters, like O and C, were easy to find. Others, such as A, B and R, were much harder.

"I had just become a father when I had tracked down all of the letters, so the Dr Seuss style alphabet is a nice result to have as a new parent."

Here they are in all their glory:
