NASA Shows California Poppies in Bloom with Photo Captured from Space via My Modern Met

NASA Shows California Poppies in Bloom with Photo Captured from Space via My Modern Met

 

Each spring, California’s Antelope Valley explodes with color as vast quantities of flowers bloom. While there are several types of wildflowers in the mix, it’s the state flower—the California poppy—that is the star of the show. Typically visitors flock to the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve to take in the breathtaking scene, but this year is proving a bit different.

With the reserve temporarily closed due to COVID-19 measures, in-person poppy watching isn’t possible. But thanks to NASA, we’re able to have a whole different perspective on the event. As the poppy fields are located close to NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center, it’s only fitting that a land imager aboard the Landsat 8 satellite captured the superbloom at its peak.

Get These Datura Flowers on Shower Curtains, Pillows, and More From Douglas E. Welch Design and Photography [For Sale]

2 years ago we spent several weekends walking sections of the Los Angeles River with some friends. I saw these flowers in the section that runs along the 5 freeway from the Valley towards downtown. Despite the fact that they are quite ubiquitous in some areas, there is a beauty to be found in their flowers that rivals more specialized and hybridized plants and flowers. I hope you enjoy it.
