— -- You can now marvel at a dozen new shots of Earth every day.

NASA has launched a new website this week showcasing beauty shots of Earth as it rotates over a 24-hour period. The photos are taken from the vantage point of the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR), which is positioned a million miles away from Earth.

Every day, visitors to the new website can expect to see at least a dozen gorgeous color images of our planet that NASA said will have been taken anywhere from 12 to 36 hours earlier from the Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC). Because the images will be taken over the course of the day, it will show Earth as it rotates, providing a look at the entire globe.

Scientists have been using images from the camera to observe changes in vegetation, ozone, aerosols and cloud height and reflectivity, according to NASA. You can check out your daily views of Earth by visiting the new site here.
