NASA Earth as Art App for iPad: Have a Bird-Eye View of the Blue Planet

Space photos from NASA were always amazing, but looking at the Blue Planet from the space is more breathtaking. NASA Earth as Art app (free) celebrates the beauty of our planet from the space. They share images captioned with detailed text, the real focus on landscapes from various camera angles.

NASA captures the images from five Earth-orbiting satellites: Terra, Landsat 5, Landsat 7, EO-1, and Aqua. For those curious about satellites, the app links them to NASA mission pages for a detailed preview.
