I still remember the original iPhone background. You know. The ridiculously simple shot of Earth. No phone background since has really captured my imagination in the same way since. Aerial Wallpapers, a site that finds great satellite photos and optimizes them for phones, has just changed all of that.

The site is the work of João Paulo Bernardes, who curates open-source images from the likes of Airbus and NASA. He’s got a pretty great eye — there’s everything from great nature shots of ice breaking (my new background), to hi-res shots of cities, fields, and volcanoes. If you’re bored of your stock image, and you want something to cheer up your weekend, these are definitely worth a shot. [Tumblr via Kottke]
