20 Public Domain Photographs of Earth from Space

Earth is of course where we live and is the third planet from the sun. Looking at earth from space gives us a different perspective and makes our planet seem small. It is truly beautiful and spectacular to behold. Astronauts are privileged to be able to view the earth from space for themselves.


The earth appears like a giant marble, with blue parts (oceans) and swirls of white clouds. There are green, yellow and brown parts, which are land.


These images are public domain and copyright free, and come to us courtesy of NASA.  They are free to use as photo reference, and can be used in any design project. I will be sharing several series of free images in the upcoming weeks and months. Hopefully these will inspire you!
