European Space Agency can serve your imagery fix whilst NASA is down. #planetearthispretty

Colossal (and Devid Sketchbook) provides this awesome option.

Luckily there’s still at least one space agency still publishing photos of space (and space from Earth), the European Space Agency. The ESA has an incredible Observing the Earth archive that’s updated every week and each satelitte image is usually accompanied by a brief essay to explain a bit about what you’re looking at.

Now for the whoa part:

Before Sharknado, there was this…

“The Headington Shark is an unusual installation by sculptor John Buckley that features a shark crashing head-first through the roof of a home. Located at 2 New High Street in Headington, Oxford, England, the sculptural piece brings the comical fear of a Sharknado to life. Created in 1986 (long before the release of the Syfy television film) and renovated in 2007, the permanent installation still draws the entertained gaze of passersby.”
