The Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth hosts the best and most complete online collection of astronaut photographs of the Earth from 1961 through the present.
The free database is is a great way to explore both photographs and videos taken by astronauts from space. The public is permitted to use the images so long as they credit them appropriately:
“Image courtesy of the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit, NASA Johnson Space Center” or “Video courtesy of the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit, NASA Johnson Space Center” as appropriate. We recommend that the caption for any photograph published include the unique photo number (Mission-Roll-Frame), and our website (http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov) so that others can locate or obtain copies when needed.
