Natural beauty is a thing to behold. In this week’s post, we highlight satellite images of Earth. Gathering photos from NASA, ESA, and EROSC, the images are perfectly formatted for iPhone and a great addition for your Lock or Home screen.

These images were taken from the WLPPR app, which hosts a vast collection of similar photographs, all gathered from our solar system. Step inside for an immediate download.
