FALL FOLIAGE: Have you been noticing color changes in the landscape around you?  How about fall foliage?  You can capture what you see with the Land Cover tool within the GLOBE Observer app. And if you haven't seen it already check out the some NASA's favorite fall foliage space views of Earth in the link below.
