The current Gallery, presented in the slideshow, is a group of images borrowed from NASA. Many of the photos were taken from the International Space Station.
Several of the photos allow us to see large areas of the earth's surface. Some give us a clear picture of the earth as a globe. In some photos we see a blue frame. That blue frame is our atmosphere. Air. Our natural environment.
It should be clear that with everyone on Earth sharing that environment, we are together a global community.
Ear to the Earth's mission is to develop and improve that community to become a global conversation with its catalyst in the arts, including ideas, stories, images, and sounds.
Our plan for the current Gallery is to exchange images individually at different times, showing various views and aspects of the earth. If you have images that you would like to contribute and display, please contact us.
As the Gallery changes, we post the images online. To see past Galleries, go here.
