Our Favorite Aerial Views of Earth

Posted: 07/27/11 08:31 AM ET

Birds really do get the best views, well... and astronauts too. When images were broadcast to the world of the historic moment NASA's final shuttle Atlantis made its descent to Kennedy Space Center last week, we had a moment of inspiration. Let us celebrate that greatest of human endeavours - the incredible ability to take flight - with a selection of our favourite bird's eye views of earth.

Lake Gray Glacier, Patagonia

Surely the most ethereal place on this blue planet, birds definitely get the best views of eerie Lake Gray Glacier in Patagonia. Stick around long enough and you will hear the spooky creaking sounds of the glacier as it cracks, breaks off and crashes into the sea.
