Blue Marble

Above is an astonishing photograph of the Earth. It is the most detailed and accurate images of Earth taken yet. The photograph is truly amazing and shows the planet in all its beauty. It is such a wonderful image that words do not do it justice. 

Astronomers at the Goddard Space Flight Centre produced the series, called “Blue Marble”, using the Terra satellite more than 435 miles (700km) above the Earth’s surface. They also produced an accurate example of the Earth’s topography, ocean depths and Arctic and Antarctic ice. After capturing images every eight days – to compensate for clouds that might block the sensor’s view – the composition has even left Nasa experts astonished.

“These images are the most detailed images of Earth to date and which shows the beauty of our small planet,” a Nasa spokesman said.
