If you ever wanted to send a love filled ode to the planet we call home, now is your chance. Kicking off this week, NASA has launched their second annual Earth Day video competition.

The contest is open to all planetary science enthusiasts who can produce and edit a short video showing their creative perspective on planet Earth. Entrants will be competing for a chance to watch NASA science unfold live during the launch of a new rocket, a part of the agency’s Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM).

In a press release, NASA said that its science “has changed how we think about exploring the Earth or even how we see the Earth.” The agency is asking video producers to take a look at how that science may have influenced their own views.

NASA directs participants to keep their entire video short, no more than two minutes long. They also ask that those who enter draw from its wide catalog of visualization tools, which include videos shot from the International Space Station in orbit around the Earth and computer simulations of weather events.

The winner of the contest will be announced after the competition’s close on May 31. Watch as last year’s winner, Fiona Conn, beautifully meditated on Earth’s seemingly unique ability to host life.
