Earth Day: Checking out the earth from above



April 22 marks the annual celebration of Earth Day. GeoEye is one of the premier providers of satellite and aerial imagery. Headquartered in Dulles, Va., GeoEye is commissioned by various defense, intelligence, urban planning and environmental monitoring groups to keep an eye on Earthly developments.

GeoEye's satellites have captured the millions of people who were in DC on Inauguration Day to erupting volcanoes and well known geological features such as Uluru in Australia.

Check out their Natural Features Gallery for some amazing shots of our earth!
