Wednesday is the 45th annual Earth Day, and according to the Earth Day Network, more than 1 billion people from 192 countries will participate in celebrations, activities, and events. This makes Earth Day the largest civic observance in the world. The video above is a simple homage to Earth's beauty courtesy of the storytelling medium that marries sight and sound with our desire for wonder and adventure: cinema.
