10 images of the Earth that look like art

10 images of the Earth that look like art

To early space travelers, the Earth must have looked like a ball of blues, green, whites and browns. Did we ever imagine that the Earth could look like an abstract painting or a sand painting that a child might make at summer camp? The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) along with the Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center offers these amazing shots of the Earth. EROS is a remotely sensed data management, systems development, and research field center for the USGS. The organization provides research for science and technology efforts around the world. It's fitting that such scientific entities can produce such beautiful artwork. This photo was taken in 1999 of the Vatnajokull Glacier ice cap in Iceland's Skaftafell National Park.
