World Environment Day
Today, June 5, is the internationally declared “World Environment Day”. Its official focus this year is on sea level change and the loss of small islands beneath the oceans. The day was originally announced in the 1970’s by the UN as an international day to focus on the environment and various issues associated with it.
To fit with that day, astronaut Alexander Gerst shared this unbelievably gorgeous photo from the International Space Station a few days ago. The sun glinting off the planet’s surface, clouds and shadows giving texture. Not much else I can say other than this is now at the top of my list for my favorite ISS photos.
