Throughout history, humans have wondered what Earth looked like from above.

The advent of satellites changed our perspective dramatically, though early imagery was often blurry and lacked detail. 

Today, thanks to decades of technological advancements and innovation, the quality and resolution of satellite imagery has significantly improved. 

Satellites from NOAA and other organizations around the world capture vital information that help us stay safe, while also sharing the beauty of our planet from afar. For us, every day is Earth Day! 

As we celebrate Earth Day, let us marvel at the wonders of our planet and reflect on our responsibility to cherish and protect it. 

Together, let’s ensure that the view from space remains a symbol of hope and inspiration for generations to come.
