Earth, Observed

Amazing photos of Earth from on high. The kind of photos that you look at and can’t figure out what they are — island, mountain, desert, ocean, sky?  The photos were shot from satellites and astronaut missions, and they include descriptions and notes on geographic location (many are in the Middle East). The variety is what strikes me.

Here’s one from Saudi Arabia:
