Smithsonian shows us the Earth from Space

The Smithsonian Institution has a wonderful online exhibition of satellite imagery called Earth from Space. There are a variety of categories including the living planet, water and air, structure of the land, the human presence, and satellite technology.

Each category has a few images (zoomable and scrollable) with a small section of text, geographic information, and satellite information.

The website is a good resource for those wishing for a simple introduction into the world of remote sensing.
