Sitting 250 out in space, the International Space Station (ISS) offers a unique vantage point to see the Earth with new eyes. While on an extended mission, the NASA astronaut Scott Kelly snapped a series of photographs of Australia as the station passed over remote landscapes on the vast continent. NASA decided they should be given the designation as EarthArt.

Kelly's images easily could be hung in an art gallery in New York, Paris, or elsewhere as beautiful abstract collages. WHB
