NASA — Earth as Art

NASA Earth as Art is a collection of images from Earth-observing environmental satellites in orbit around the planet. These satellites can measure outside the visible range of light, so the images show more than what is visible to the naked eye. The result is a stunning disarray borne from the attraction of escaping Earth's gravity.


Intended for viewing enjoyment rather than scientific interpretation, the images showcase Earth’s aesthetic beauty in the patterns, shapes, colours, and textures of the land, oceans, ice, and atmosphere. The artistry ranges from the surreal to the sublime, and we hope it adds some exciting inspiration to your own thoughts and works as it does to ours.


NASA Earth as Art is available for download as a PDF (11.3MB) and accompanying iPad app.
