You've never seen our beautiful planet quite like this!

From the American Museum of Natural History’s Virtual Earth Day celebration:

Gather the whole family for a live flight around the world to marvel at our planet’s natural wonders—from the Amazon rainforest to the Sahara Desert, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Himalayas! Join Director of Astrovisualization Carter Emmart and Museum astrophysicist Jackie Faherty as we blast off into the outer reaches of our atmosphere and see our planet from outer space.

Watch Field Trip Earth. The sound starts at 1:40.


So neat… thanks for sharing! That kept my kids’ attention for longer than I thought it would. It’s kind of mind-boggling to have such a “godlike” view of Earth, especially compared to every other generation that existed.
