NASA is inviting everyone on the planet to take part in a worldwide celebration of Earth Day by taking a “Global Selfie.”
They’re asking us to step outside and take a pictures of ourselves wherever we are on Earth. Then post it to social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ or Flickr) using the hashtag #GlobalSelfie.
Then they’ll use the individual pictures tagged #GlobalSelfie to create a mosaic image of Earth — a new “Blue Marble” built bit by bit with your photos.
They’re looking for selfies in front of mountains, parks, the sky, rivers, lakes — wherever you are. Tell them where you are in a sign, words written in the sand, spelled out with rocks — or by using the printable signs they’ve created that are available on their web site.
They say the Earth mosaic image itself and a video using the images will be put together and released in May.
