Welcome to NYESTA home of the New York Earth Science Teachers Association.



New York, recognized as leader in Earth Science education in the United States, finally has an organization dedicated to the advancement of this discipline. This is a collaboration of the best teachers focused on continued excellence in the study of our planet.  We are working to maintain Earth Science to its high standards.

The goal of NYESTA is to promote Earth Science in New York State by offering a professional community for both pre-service and the working New York State Earth Science Teacher.

We are an affiliate of the National Earth Science Teachers Association.

BONUS EPOD Image Creator: Bruno Christophalo Image Date: 07/27/17 Image Location: Itatinga - São Paulo / Brazil Image Description: Meteor captured on a single frame at the outskirts of Itatinga-SP/Brazil. Lately, when the image was posted online, an associate of BRAMON - Brazilian Meteor Observation Network checked the photo and crossed the image's astrometry and date/hour data with another two registers of the same meteor in their database, captured by meteor observation stations. With all these information they could track the meteor and obtain more info about it, learning that it came from the July Gamma Draconids radiant. ----------------------------- About Bonus EPOD's: We receive more material than we can use on our daily webpage. Some of those images are presented here on Facebook with the information provided by the contributor. ---------------------------- To contribute your images go to epod.usra.edu/blog/contribute-to-epod.html View today's Earth Science Picture of the Day at epod.usra.edu/ Twitter @EarthPic Instagram @earthpicoftheday
