Free For All – Earth as Art

Quote_crop

Through Earth as Art, NASA makes fascinating and beautiful images of our home planet freely available and easily accessible to the public. This compilation of Earth-centric imagery pulls from a full range of NASA satellites and their many band combinations to create imagery worthy of any museum. To celebrate the many years of discovery and observation, the ‘best’ Earth as Art images have been compiled into a publication. Each image is accompanied by a brief description of the natural phenomenon captured, the imaging satellite and some interesting facts about the local geography.
