Behold Earth as it’s never been seen before. Cameras in space tell stories of life on our planet from a brand-new perspective, revealing its incredible movements, colors, patterns and just how fast it’s changing.
This extraordinary viewpoint reveals amazing events happening every day in both the natural and human worlds. From the intimate to the epic, the surprising to the familiar, LIFE FROM ABOVE offers a rare look at Earth, its landscapes and its inhabitants that goes beyond what we thought we knew.

Episode 2: “Colorful Planet” repeats Friday, Dec. 25 at 10 a.m. - View Earth's kaleidoscope of colors as seen from space.

Episode 3: “Patterned Planet” repeats Thursday, Dec. 31 at 10 a.m. - Discover the weird and wonderful shapes that cover Earth's surface as seen from space.
