Do you sometimes forget how beautiful the Earth is? Well if you do, then you have got to watch the amazing timelapse captured by a NASA satellite showing an entire Earth Year.
The camera, which belongs to NASA, snaps a picture once every two hours. A team led by EPIC lead scientist Jay Herman took the 3,000+ images captured by the satellite to create the unprecedented video. The video runs from August 2015 to July 2016, capturing the ever-changing perturbations of the Earth's weather systems. Prominent features seen in the video include the continents, deserts, forests, and various bodies of water.
From this spot, EPIC has captured more than 3,000 stunning images of the Earth as it makes the 365 day journey around the bright ball of gas.
EPIC takes a new picture of the Earth every two hours. In the video, Herman says, "EPIC is placed at a special gravitational balance point and from this view,  it sees the sunrise in the west and the sunset in the east at least 13 times a day."
Watch this video to fall in love with our beautiful planet all over again.
