On this Earth  Day, NASA has released a new website that allows exploration of change on Earth. 

In one comparison, NASA snapped a photo of Tucson from space in 1984.

That image is pictured aside another photo snapped from space in 2011.  

The comparison shows how much the population of Tucson has expanded through the metropolitan area covering the basin.  

Other images show how wildfires change land cover, drought affects water reservoirs and even how the deadly Washington state landslide in March could be seen from space.  

Check out these images and more at NASA's State of Flux Images of Change.
