Six best Earth images from NASA’s ASTER project

The Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) has been taking stunning photos of the earth’s surface since 1999.

Aster is a joint project between NASA and Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, and has been taking high resolution images of life on earth for 17 years.

For the first time, the 2.95 million satellite images are now available to the public via the ASTER Gallery Map.
