The Earth from Space


Sometimes, within the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it’s good to sit back and think about what a beautiful place we live in. For a broader (and certainly more global) view of this, here are some amazing pictures of the Earth viewed from Space.


I particularly like the above picture of night and day in Western Europe. You can clearly see the city lights in the parts of Europe that are still under nightfall, which is clearly contrasted by the bright, clear day in the other part of Europe.
