While NASA’s Goddard Earth Observing System Model (GEOS-5) satellite helps shed light on our changing planet – it’s also damn good at just making the whole thing look so pretty.

This new image helps show Earth’s climate system as it involves airborne particles. According to NASA, dust (red) is lifted from the surface, sea salt (blue) swirls inside cyclones, smoke (green) rises from fires, and sulfate particles (white) stream from volcanoes and fossil fuel emissions.
