Nowadays we have access to a load of images taken by satellites. We can look at them in Google Maps, Google Earth and many other online cartography services. The NASA itself used to publish a picture a day before the service was closed. Luckily the European Space Agency continues to publish awesome photos taken by its satellites (archive here) to delight our eyes letting us see sceneries we probably will never be able to see in real life (at least if you are not an astronaut).

Today we show you a selection of these larger than life images that you probably will never see in most famous online maps services. We are sure you will love them.

All the images are property of European Space Agency.
