The Earth in all its splendour, a review by 2020 with the most beautiful spaces on our planet or the most significant images of climate change taken by astronauts from the International Space Station.
Although this new year's eve almost every review of the last 12 months includes scenes or mentions of the damn pandemic that has caused so much pain in the world, we can still see some summary whose images are far from that reality, which brings us a little more perspective.
Life is still around us, even if something else goes unnoticed for us. The images NASA has shared in a video showing our planet with all its grandeur, spectacular in many ways. They are photographs taken throughout the year by astronauts living on the International Space Station.
"The men and women who live and work on the International Space Station take thousands of photographs of their home planet each year, and we ask the people of the Earth Sciences and Remote Sensing Unit at NASA's Johnson Space Center for some of their 2020 favourites," theU.S. space agency has explained in a tweet.
In the video, we see images as striking as the Moon peeking across the planet from one of SpaceX's Crew Dragon windows. Everyone can choose their favourite, although it's difficult. They can be the vibrant colours of New Caledonia's Moindou Bay or autumn orange and green in Ottawa, Canada.
Among the images, you can see very interesting environmental phenomena such as the terrible fires that swept this summer the largest nature reserve in Kenya. We also see the reflection of sunlight in the Mediterranean Sea surrounding Corsica and Sardinia.
