If you took a stack of satellite photos and handed them to a Crayola-wielding child, you'd get back something like this. In fact these vivid and unusual pictures of Earth from above are authentic captures from US Geological Survey (USGS) satellites, the myriad colours created by various sensors aboard

Much of Oman is desert, but the coast of the Arabian Sea in the Dhofar region represents a startling difference in climate. This coastal region catches the monsoon rains, or khareef, during the summer months. Drenching rains fall primarily on the mountainous ridge that separates the lush, fertile areas along the coast from the arid interior

The Yukon Delta, with a purple tint, comes to resemble a human heart

The image USGS calls Van Gough From Space (actually of Gotland, an island in the Baltic Sea)

Meighen Island - 14 June 2000. A veil of blowing snow nearly obscures Meighen Island (left) off the northern coast of Canada. Across the Sverdrup Channel lies the much larger Axel Heiberg Island, where glaciers (blue) huddle among mountain peaks (yellow) and flow into deep fjords. No evidence of human occupation has ever been found on Meighen Island


Please, go to the article/gallery for more info and awesome pics. Just so wonderful appearing. No wonder aliens come here a lot. Who wouldn't want to after flying around a lot of dreary moons and dead planets. Earth must be like a big neon sign to them.

Our earth is so simple yet so complex. What I find myself aways doing is focusing on what the littlest creatures below in a photo (that you can see of course). Example, on that island. Around it. Little God creatures swimming and walking around-doing their thing. Clueless to what Humans are doing around them.

Anyway, awesome work on the pics. I hope you enjoy and realize how important and fragile our Earth is.
