Living on Earth in 2020 was quite a challenge, to put it mildly. But when you move 400 km away from our home planet, it looks peaceful, quiet, and stunningly beautiful. NASA recently shared 20 top photos of Earth made by the ISS astronauts to remind us that our planet is actually a wonderful place. At least from afar.

NASA’s Johnson Space Center explains that folks who live and work on the ISS “take thousands of photographs of their home planet every year.” So, at the end of this crazy year, people from the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit at Johnson Space Center chose a few of their favorites.  You can see all of them if you keep scrolling, and also see them as a slideshow in the video above. Make sure to check out the photos and more details at the Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth.
