The image marked the first of its kind to show the sunlit side of the Earth. A year later, NASA has gifted us dwelling here on the big spinning rock with vision of what a year on Earth looks like from a million miles away. Mind blown.

EPIC is a component of the satellite Deep Space Climate Observatory (DISCOVR), which is balanced between the gravity of the planet we call home and the sun. It captures a photo every two hours that depicts just how the human eye would see its home from the outside — from its atmospheric changes to its drifting of clouds and stirring of storm systems.

Aside from its ability to make you feel infinitesimal in an ever-expanding universe, the camera’s primary purpose is to maintain U.S. real time wind-monitoring capabilities, which are a vital component when forecasting space weather alerts.
