Long before there was Google Earth, NASA has been snapping some pretty sweet pics of our planet from space.  Most of these pictures are taken from around 200 nautical miles (about 230 normal miles) from earth. I killed some time on the company dime today and found some of the coolest space pictures of Montana.

Here's one of St. Mary Lake, the second largest lake in Glacier National Park:

And this one is probably my favorite, Fort Peck Reservoir:
