Earth From Space

  • Released Tuesday, April 21, 2015

The view of Earth from orbit is never the same—from minute to minute, day to day, year to year. Today, NASA has a fleet of 18 Earth-observing satellite missions—including three new satellites and two instrument missions launched in the past year—that keep a close eye on our planet. Together they have revolutionized our ability to observe the world from space. At a time when our planet is undergoing critically important changes, these satellites and instruments offer not only stunning imagery but also provide vitally important information about how Earth is changing. Watch the video to see a compilation of Earth views released by NASA in 2014.
