It's Earth Day this Sunday, and we're excited as always. After all, OWL has been a nature and science magazine for over 40 years now. The Earth is kind of our favourite subject!
Just look at it...

Satellite images like this give us an incredible chance to appreciate the unbelievable natural formations on our planet.
But human beings—and our cities and civilizations—also contribute to the many remarkable patterns and shapes visible from space. See?
Enter the Arena!
Which brings us to a video that we'd like to share with you. Arena is a tribute to the many designs and arrangements that we place over the Earth. Irish artist Páraic McGloughlin created it by stringing together thousands of Google Earth satellite images into a little movie. We like to think of it as a reminder that human civilizations have their own beauty to them—as long as we can learn to work with nature and not against it!
