AmericaView Supports Landsat 9 Launch

AmericaView was proud to support the launch of Landsat 9 in September 2021 from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. Through collaborations with the USGS and NASA, AmericaView highlighted and celebrated the Landsat program with multiple displays and activities in and around Lompoc, CA during the Landsat 9 launch week festivities.

Mr. Brent Yantis, LouisianaView Principal Investigator and Chairman of the AmericaView Board of Directors, packed and transported the traveling Earth as Art exhibit from Lafayette, LA to Lompoc. The exhibit, consisting of dozens of Landsat images as art, were displayed at the Lompoc Public Library, the Lompoc Aquatic Center, and several recreation centers and businesses around the Lompoc area.
