Thanks to advanced satellite images, we can now see the earth's surface, its megastructures, weather patterns, and natural wonders in breathtaking detail. From revelatory views just above the ground to semi-abstract perspectives from outer space, the photographs here include the striped tulip fields of Holland; a towering dust cloud looming over an African town; the city of Chennai, sprawling endlessly; two Tongan islands, recently united by a volcanic eruption; and an aurora borealis seen from the International Space Station. In the more than 200 color images, animals are central, with glimpses of gigantic beaver dams and turtle migrations only visible from far above.
