Watch: Best views of our planet, as seen from space in 2012

April is Earth Month, and NASA is celebrating by highlighting the planet’s prettiest poses and its most pressing issues in an interactive presentation online.

Among the featured elements is this compilation of “the best views of our planet from space in 2012,” which includes “true-color satellite images, Earth science data visualizations, time lapses form the International Space Station and computer models," says NASA.
