    quote: This stunning Nasa photo puts the 'art' into ‘earth’ thanks to its incredible resemblance to a Vincent van Gogh masterpiece. The satellite image shows massive congregations of green phytoplankton swirling in the dark water around Gotland, a Swedish island in the Baltic Sea. It has nicknamed the picture 'Van Gogh From Space' because of its similarity to 'The Starry Night', the 1888 work by the famous Dutch artist. The photograph was taken 400 miles above Earth on July 13, 2005.
