It is very interesting to explore new cities and their sky views
Victoria McNamara's curator insight, December 12, 2013 12:41 PM

After taking this quiz I realized I could not really identify most of these cities. I could tell some of them were European from the look of the buildings. I also thought a few more were cities in the United States but there was only Dallas. In my opinion these cities are even more spectacular than some of our major cities.

After looking at these pictures it gave me a different perspective on how the world really did look from above.

European Space Agency and Nasa takes picture to communicate the natural disaters happening in Canada and Indonesia so other countries are aware of the stuggles.

The amount of events that effect other places even if they are far away astonishes me. Though the ariel views are amazing they show that even something that happens far away can effect you. In a age that most things that effect you from a long distance away via electronic devices, its very interesting to see actual natural events that effect people.
