LOOK: NASA Releases ANOTHER High-Definition Image Of Earth

Hidden Ocean Locked Up Deep in Earth's Mantle. This photo from NASA's Suomi NPP satellite shows the Eastern Hemisphere of Earth in "Blue Marble" view.

Call me crazy but... If technology gets to the point where Space Shuttle flights are as common as airplane flights, I will be the first to buy a ticket just to see the Earth from space and experience zero gravity.

On a Blue Moon (Sept 1 2012)  Image Credit & Copyright: Simon Smith  Explanation: Rising at sunset, the gorgeous Full Moon of August 31 became the second Full Moon in a month. According to modern reckoning, that makes it a Blue Moon. In fact, parts of the Full Moon do look a little blue in this sharp lunar portrait. Taken just hours before the exact full phase in delightfully clear skies over Nottingham, UK, it features eye-catching bright rays (...) #astronomy #moon

Rising at sunset, the gorgeous Full Moon of August 2012 became the second Full Moon in a month. According to modern reckoning, that makes it a Blue Moon. In fact, parts of the Full Moon do look a little blue in this sharp lunar portrait.

This view of the Earth rising over the Moon's horizon was taken during the Apollo 11 mission in 1969. The lunar terrain pictured is in the area of Smyth's Sea on the nearside. While the Lunar Module "Eagle" was on the surface to explore the Sea of Tranquility, the Command and Services Module "Columbia" remained in lunar orbit.    Image Credit: NASA

View of the Earth rising over the Moon's horizon taken during the Apollo 11 mission in Probably not a great space for a crepe shop, but a great view just the same.

Take a visual tour through the four largest moons of Jupiter - the Galilean Moons: Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. Journey from the most volcanic body in the solar system to ice worlds that may hide life to the largest moon in the Solar System

What are the Galilean Moons?

This "family portrait" is a composite of the Jovian system: the edge of Jupiter with its Great Red Spot + Jupiter's 4 largest moons, known as the Galilean satellites. The moons (top-to-bottom): Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.

Venus is one unique planet when it comes to rotational motion. It takes Venus 243 Earth days to completely rotate on its axis, but just 225 days to orbit the sun. Venus also is one of two planets that rotates in reverse, a phenomenon called retrograde motion, which according to most theories is due to an ancient planetary collision.

Venus - one day is longer than its entire year. It takes Venus 243 Earth days to completely rotate on its axis, but just 225 days to orbit the sun. Venus is one of two planets that rotates in reverse, called retrograde motion.

Perspective...

our solar system, the sun, arcturus, antares, the milky way and the universe. How does the size of earth stack up.

Earth and Moon From the eye of the camera in space we see the earth as a God Designed Space ship lighted by the Sun by Day and by the Reflected sun on the moons surface by night. It's awesome to think (Cool Places On Earth)
