Just look at those curves, those blue eyes... Earth's beauty is unparalleled. From the seas to the skies, there are plenty of reasons to love your mother.
NASA's Deep Space Climate Observatory Satellite (DSCOVR) beamed this awesome image back to the homeland from a million miles away in July 2015, after combining three separate photos taken with NASA's Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC). Apt acronym, no?

Rock, paper, lanterns
Your mother also has a tendency of bringing people together.

The Bryce is right
She's even been known to split her sides laughing.

Somehow the word unique doesn't quite cut it.
She even looks good when she's going to bed.

Legends of the Fall
She's always there to catch us when we fall... and in beautiful fashion.
Here, a rainbow appears in a cloud of mist rising over Horseshoe Falls, the largest of the Niagara Falls. The falls, which have a combined highest flow rate of any waterfalls in the world, straddle the U.S.-Canada border, drawn through the Niagara River, which drains Lake Erie into Lake Ontario.
The falls, visited by millions of tourists on each side of the border, are also a major source of hydroelectric power for the region.

Under the sea
She is beautiful from her head to her toes. In fact, some of the most amazing animals on Earth can be found under the sea.

The prodigal sun returns
She always leaves the light on for you.
Here, the moon nears completion of its path across the sun during a partial solar eclipse as seen through the leaves of trees near Mount Wilson Observatory in Los Angeles.
Solar eclipses occur when the moon, sun and Earth are aligned in such a way that, in parts of the world, the shadow of the moon blocks out the sun.

She only smokes a little.

There's never a bad time to visit your mother. Take autumn, for example.
Here, members of the public cross a bridge in Pitlochry, Scotland, October 24, 2014. The warm temperatures, ample sunshine and rain spells of summer 2014, made for a particularly spectacular show of autumn colors that year in the woods and forests across the UK.

Buy her some flowers
She 'aint half bad in Spring either.
Here, boats are seen under blooming cherry blossom trees at Chidorigafuchi in Tokyo, Japan.
The Cherry blossom season begins in Okinawa in January and then moves north through, peaking in Kyoto and Tokyo at the end of March.

Never an icy reception
In fact, every time you see her, she's got a different look.

Bear of a day
In sum, Mother Earth has been pretty good to us. Now it's our turn to be good to her.
The image of the polar bear has become synonymous with environmental activism, amid concerns that global warming is causing the polar ice caps to melt. As a result, this guy is basically the unofficial mascot of Earth Day.
Here, a Polar Bear walks on the frozen tundra near Churchill, Canada, waiting for the Hudson Bay to freeze over. Churchill is known as the Polar Bear capital of the world because the animals travel there every year to hunt seals on the icepack until the Spring thaw.
