The Blue Marble, an amazing photograph

The Blue Marble I’m not sure if NASA read my advice about getting in close and filling the frame or not. On the one hand, you can see that this beautiful, full-color photograph of the Earth fills the frame. On the other hand, the shot was taken from 700km away. So, it fills the frame, but close? No way! Actually, this is a composite image stitched together back in 2002 from many smaller, true-color images of portions of the Earth’s surface taken over several months. The images are freely available to the public.
