The European Space Agency has an incredible Observing the Earth archive that’s updated every week and each satellite image is usually accompanied by a brief essay to explain a bit about what you’re looking at. Collected here are some of our favorite images from the last few years taken with too many different satellites to mention, and you can search photos back through 2005 here.
