Yesterday was Earth Day, designed to appreciate the Earth’s environment, and all of our roles within it. Below is a collection of pictures taken recently to celebrate Earth Day, courtesy of The Big Picture at Boston.com

Using a collection of satellite-based observations, scientists and visualizers stitched together months of observations of the land surface, oceans, sea ice, and clouds into a seamless, true-color mosaic of every square kilometer of our planet.
