Review:

This soothing, well-produced DVD is the next best thing to riding piggyback on a satellite. Over 150 orbital images from NASA are sequenced to provide a comprehensive tour of Earth's magnificent features, from continental contours and island systems to spectacular atmospheric and oceanographic conditions. Accompanied by 15 songs by Celtic harpist Lisa Lynne, these high-resolution images float across the screen to form an epic collage of our planet's delicate beauty. While signs of civilization are occasionally evident, the emphasis is placed on Earth's natural formations, from shifting dunes and wave patterns to the stark relief of the Himalayas. Lynne's music tends to have a soporific effect (probably intentional), but as a calming mood-setter this DVD is highly recommended. Curious viewers will especially appreciate the detailed scientific information that accompanies each image on separate menu screens. For those who may never fly in the space shuttle, this high-altitude journey is a definite treat. --Jeff Shannon
