Earth from Space

Earth from Space

This quality Smithsonian Institution site does precisely what it promises — offering astounding images of our planet from an orbiting satellite. The Online Exhibit's photos are arranged in five sections: Living Planet, Water & Air, Structure of the Land, TheHuman Presence, and Satellite Technology. Each photo is 'zoomable,' allowing users to get a closer look at an Amazon forest or a desert in China. Besides the great photos the site offers a series of lesson plans.
