NASA has just released nearly 3 million satellite images of Earth

2016-04-06 // photography

NASA has put online nearly 3 million satellite images of the Earth! These photographs have been collected since 1999 by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer, aka ASTER, a system aboard the Terra satellite. In this incredible collection, covering nearly 99% of the surface of the Earth, you can discovered satellite images of historical monuments, famous landscapes, geological formations, major world cities and even volcanoes and natural disasters. I propose you a selection of my favorite pictures, but you can also browse through this collection on the NASA website.
