Over the past 20 years, a lot of things have changed. But through all those changes, there’s been the same place to find daily images of our planet: Earth Observatory.

In two decades, NASA’s daily Earth magazine has shared 15,000 images, showing the latest satellite imagery, unique visuals, global maps, and easy-to-understand data visualizations so you can have a better understanding of our dynamic planet.
