The MODIS site now has a RSS feed that keeps you abreast of the latest Images of the Day, as well as recent new postings on the MODIS website. You can access the XML file at http://modis.gsfc.nasa.gov/rss/rss.xml. More details regarding what RSS is and how to use it located below.

What is RSS?
RSS (or Really Simple Syndication) feeds are free content feeds from Web sites that contain article headlines, summaries and links back to full-text articles on the web.

What tools do I need to use RSS?
To start using RSS, you need a special news reader or aggregator that displays RSS content feeds from Web sites you select. There are many different news readers available, many of which are free of charge. Most are available as desktop software that you download and install on your computer. Several Web-based news readers are available as well. Firefox, a web browser, supports live bookmarks which allow you to monitor RSS feeds from your bookmarks tab in your browser.

List of news readers (Google)

Once you have set up your news reader, you simply subscribe to the RSS content feeds you want.

What are the benefits of using RSS?
RSS is an easy way for you to be alerted when content that interests you appears on your favorite Web sites. Instead of visiting a particular Web site to browse for new articles and features, RSS automatically tells you when something new is posted online.
Click on the section title link to obtain the RSS URL, which you will see in the "Address" field of of your browser. Simply copy this URL and follow the instructions for your particular news reader to subscribe.
