These 21 Incredible Satellite Photos Will Give You A Fresh Perspective Of Earth

Here are 21 satellite photos that show how different the world looks from up above.

The project was launched by Benjamin Grant and was titled the Daily Overview.

According to the website, “this term refers to the sensation astronauts have when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole.”

The online project conveys the true beauty of systematic constructs on the ground created by humans. All of the systems we’ve grown accustomed to on our planet look magnificent from an aerial view and it’s something we don’t tend to think of on a daily basis.

It really is a fascinating time to be alive. Technology has endless amounts to be shared. All of the 21 phots are courtesy of Benjamin Grant/Google Earth/Digital Globe.
