NASA Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera
Thursday, December 2, 2021

The EPIC API provides information on the daily imagery collected by Deep Space Climate Observatory DSCOVR's Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) instrument. Uniquely positioned at the Earth-Sun Lagrange point, EPIC provides full disc imagery of the Earth and captures unique perspectives of certain astronomical events such as lunar transits using a 2048x2048 pixel CCD (Charge Coupled Device) detector coupled to a 30-cm aperture Cassegrain telescope.
