Mount Egmont / Mount Taranaki on New Zealand\s North Island. (It has two names, the second is the traditional Maori one.)

You can easily see the boundary between the protected forest area and the surrounding agricultural land. The mountain's a volcano, though it hasn't erupted for over 150 years. When the peak is covered by clouds and mist, Maori myths say that Taranaki weeps for Pihanga his lost love. The image acquired by Korea's Kompsat-2 satellite.

Great Bahamas Bank. Underwater structures in the Bank are featured in this Landsat-8 satellite image. The Bank is north of Cuba, and is made of limestone. It comes mainly from the skeletal fragments of marine organisms. that has been accumulating for over 100 million years.

You may not think this satellite image of the eastern two-thirds of the USA is beautiful if you're freezing. If you're in Florida - the only state to be seen - I guess you were pretty grateful! On January 7, everywhere else in the USA beneath the GOES-East satellite was covered in clouds, blanketed by snow and generally VERY cold.

I never know whether to label some of these images as pictures from space - or art. Here's one of the Caspian Sea and it would grace any art gallery. The Caspian Sea is the biggest landlocked body of water in the world. It's bigger than Germany. It's also suffering from a fair bit of pollution, judging from this picture. Algal blooms are created by excess nutrients in the water - often fertilizers.

This picture is a day late for Martin Luther King Day. But I hope that yesterday people in the USA at least spent a few moments reflecting on what King had to say to us all. From the current tone of American politics, sadly, such a voice is needed more than ever.

But for the day NASA posted a picture of King's birthplace Atlanta seen from the International Space Station.

Yesterday, January 26, 2015, was the 100th anniversary of the Rocky Mountain National Park. Expedition 42 flight engineer Terry Virts tweeted this picture from the International Space Station.

Have a look at this wonderful timelapse. It begins by looking down on a brilliant aurora, but takes us across seas, over the clouds, skimming an evocative twilight Earth, over cities at night. Watch it full screen and rejoice in the sublime beauty of our planet. ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst took this wonderful series of high definition images of Earth from the International Space Station.

It's another high definition view of Earth from the International Space Station. The three-minute video was compiled from NASA footage captured during January and February of this year. If you watch full screen, you can almost imagine you're looking out the window down at the Earth.

This image of Super Typhoon Maysak is fascinating from space - but I sure wouldn't want to be down there with it. The typhoon had strengthened into a super typhoon, reaching Category 5 hurricane status. This picture was taken from the International Space Station by ESA Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti on March 31, 2015.

Envisat at work. It was looking down on a very verdant-looking Siberia when this image was captured on 2006-08-07.
