The last time human beings were far enough away from Earth to see the entire planet at once was December 7, 1972. That’s when the crew of Apollo 17 captured this photograph, which we now call “The Blue Marble.” For obvious reasons, today’s celebration of Earth Day is one of the most meaningful days of the year for our team. We look forward to another year of searching for and sharing these vast perspectives with you -- to inspire the powerful awe that comes when you experience the Overview Effect. We continue to believe that if we can wonder in these view more often, we’ll do what’s right and what’s necessary to protect our one and only home. Photo courtesy of @nasa

Mount Tambora is an active stratovolcano on Sumbawa, one of Indonesia’s Lesser Sunda Islands. On this day (April 17) in 1815, Mount Tambora blew its top in the world's largest volcanic eruption since 181 AD, killing at least 10,000 people directly and another 70,000 indirectly through disease and starvation. So much rock and ash was expelled that the height of the volcano was reduced from 14,000 feet (4,267m) to 9,000 feet (2743m). /// Created by @dailyoverview, source imagery: @digitalglobe

A cluster of tetrapods is seen near the High Island Reservoir in Hong Kong. These concrete structures are used to reinforce shoreline defenses and prevent coastal erosion by breaking up incoming waves. The specific shape of the tetrapod allows water to flow around rather than against the concrete and reduces displacement by interlocking. /// Drone photo courtesy of @asenseofhuber

Hundreds of boats take harbor in a bay next to Marblehead, Massachusetts, a coastal town roughly 16 miles (25km) north of Boston. With a population of about 20,000, Marblehead has roots in commercial fishing, whaling, and yachting. In fact, it is often referred to as the birthplace of the United States Navy, as many of its resident sailors played a pivotal role in the American Revolution. /// Created by @dailyoverview, source imagery: @nearmap

The Nile River is commonly regarded as the longest river in the world, flowing for 4,258 miles (6,853 km) over 11 countries in northeastern Africa. In this Overview, it is shown flowing north through Egypt, forming a large triangular delta before emptying into the Mediterranean Sea. Civilizations since ancient times have depended on the waters of the Nile to flood and fertilize surrounding desert lands. /// Created by @dailyoverview, source imagery: @NASA
