Dec 03, 2013

Digital Globe, a provider of commercial satellite pictures, gathers 1 billion square kilometers of Earth imagery every year. That's nearly enough to cover the globe twice -- and some of it is downright beautiful. Several years ago, employees at the Colorado-based organization decided to pick their favorite to share Earth's beauty with the public. This year, they've collected 20 awe-inspiring scenes, and they want you to pick your favorite of the bunch.

Their picks can be seen above, and you can vote for your favorite on DigitalGlobe's Facebook page.
