## The Plasmasphere

In this plasmasphere instructional activity, students read about the dilute region of gases 10,000 kilometers above the Earth where atoms are ionized. Students use a photograph taken by the IMAGE EUV instrument to answer 3 questions about the plasmasphere. They find the scale of the image and determine if the orbits of the International Space Station, the Global Positioning Satellite and GEO satellites are in the plasmasphere.
