S4E1: Observing Earth – JPSS & LandSat in Lompoc GeoTour

A mix of geocaching and space exploration? Yes please! GeoTours add a unique geocaching experience to areas by working with local commerce and local geocaches to create a tour highlighting an area. But one GeoTour has taken things to the next level by creating a learning experience that explores the JPSS and LandSat satellites. Join me as I talk with Julie Hoover, from NASA’s JPSS program, and Jeff Caulfield, from Geocaching HQ, to learn more about this unique and exciting GeoTour.
