Last month (on April 22nd to be precise), we celebrated Earth, an international environmental movement, introduced in 1970. A movement whose popularity has grown over years , reverberating in more than 184 countries as early as 2000. For this Earth Day 2016, NASA decided to upload some beautiful shots of our planet. Below, a selection of the best photos of the world, straight from NASA.
Tim Peake, of the European Space Agency (ESA), shared this stunning nighttime photograph with his social media followers on Jan. 25, 2016. “Beautiful night pass over Italy, Alps and Mediterranean” he said.
