Celebrate Earth Day With “#NoPlaceLikeHome “
There are 1,800 known planets beyond our solar system (so far), but among all of them, there’s no place like Earth. This Earth Day, April 22, 2015, NASA is asking you to share pictures and videos of your favorite places on Earth using social media — and tag them #NoPlaceLikeHome.
Now through Earth Day, NASA will be sharing views of Earth – from satellites, from research aircraft, and even from scientists at work in the field. Look for NASA’s posts on Twitter, Vine, Instagram, Facebook and elsewhere. They’ll all be tagged #NoPlaceLikeHome.
And NASA wants you to share views of your favorite place on Earth, whether it’s a local park, your vacation spot or Mt. Everest. Our question to you is a simple one: What is your favorite place on Earth? Answers can be submitted as pictures or videos. Check in on Earth Day to see what people around the world are sharing. After Earth Day, NASA will compile a video that includes some of the best posts throughout the day.
