Some of my favorite recent images from NASA’s Earth Observatory Image of the Day:
Swirling sea ice near Baffin Island (credit: NASA/Terra/MODIS)
Apollo 11 landing site (credit: NASA/Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter). Images of other Apollo landing sites are at NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter site. The orbiter isn’t in its final orbit, and future images will have better resolution.
