NASA captures stunning pictures of Earth

The NASA Earth Observatory provides public with detailed data on the climate.
Hi-resolution photos capture major ongoing environmental events.
Images show how both nature and man affect the surface of the planet.

The Earth Observatory online library stretches back to 1999, providing a graphic snapshot of how nature and man create changes on the surface of the planet.

The following pictures were taken from January to December 2008. From cloud streaking over the Caspian Sea in January to vast tracts of cleared forest in Bolivia in December.
