Great job in Astronomy, by the way!

In context with Science Olympiad, they are generally in reference to a heavenly body such as the Earth using satellite imagery. For the past two years, the event has focused on Mars, but it has returned to Earth for this next year.
Basically, the event is all about looking at satellite images of the Earth's surface and being able to identify the type of imaging used (infrared, false-color, true-color, etc.) and then being able to interpret the image. This may include identifying landforms, natural and man-made processes, or other specific phenomenon.
