NASA LaRC led a Facebook Live event on the NASA Earth account, featuring the GLOBE Observer app and recent app updates.

Viewers joined education outreach coordinator Sarah McCrea and research scientist Bryan Fabbri to learn how to share their cloud observations with NASA and the GLOBE Program, as well as how to compare their ground observations to corresponding satellite data.  Viewers also got a sneak peak of some of the instruments NASA uses to observe the atmosphere from their ground validation sites.

Communication collaborations between

NASA LARC, NASA GLOBE Observer, The GLOBE Program, and NASA Earth Communication staff also produced feature articles, a social media sharable, and community news items across Facebook, Twitter, email, and website platforms.
