Earth…Two Amazing Images of Our World from Space…

I came across these images today from NASA and I was pretty wowed. You’ve think you’ve seen photographs of Earth…

True-color image of the Earth. Using a collection of satellite-based observations, scientists and visualizers stitched together months of observations of the land surface, oceans, sea ice, and clouds into a seamless, true-color mosaic of every square kilometer of our planet. The cloud image is a composite of two days of imagery collected in visible light wavelengths and a third day of thermal infra-red imagery over the poles (NASA – U.S. Geological Survey).
