The NASA Earth Observations Photography database of images is a national treasure.

We are publishing these selected photos and related captions on the Internet to provide a glimpse of this national treasure to the public. This database was compiled by our staff to illustrate some very interesting Earth features and processes, including cities as seen by our Astronauts from space.

Earth from Space provides several ways to search the selected images. Each image is available in three resolutions and includes cataloging data and a caption. However, this site contains only a small selection of the best of our Earth photography. The complete database of NASA's Earth imagery is available at the Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth, which contains 1,775,243 images (count updated 4/1/2014).

The information contained in this collection is for informational purposes only and does not constitute official NASA positions or statements. We plan to update the database as new information becomes available.
