The earth from space by NASA

It is summertime which means vacation time which means trips to here and there.

Well, usually it means that.

But, perhaps this year you are not going as far afield as usual.

The heat, expenses, whatever may be keeping you home bound.

But, not to worry, we can still do some serious traveling.

How about let’s board the space shuttle and circle the earth a few times and take pictures of what we see.

Of course we can’t really do that but the NASA folks have done this for us.

And, WOW, the pictures they have taken are astounding.

Niagara Falls, Mt. St. Helen’s, Alaska, Cape Code, Antarctica, the Bahamas, Crater Lake in Oregon, New York City, the Golden Gate Bridge, The Hawaiian Islands, and on and on. You will be amazed. I certainly was.

Of course, from time to time our ‘tour guide’ (the explanation beneath each photo), has on his ‘old earth glasses’ but putting that aside, you will still love these pictures.

So, sit back, relax, put on your ‘vacation cap’ and let’s enjoy these amazing photos of earth from space.  HERE’S THE LINK.
