Weather is oddly topographical. Rarely is it as clear as in this photograph snapped by astronaut Terry Virts from the International Space Station, where clouds have settled into the Seine river valley meandering near Paris, France.


We have a truly beautiful planet. Can we try to take a bit better care of it this year than we did last? Happy 2015, folks. Here's to endless learning, exploration, and discovery!
