Dear Commons Community,
The photo above was shot by Russian weather satellite Electro-L, and is derived from the highest resolution images ever taken of Earth. The satellite, which is in orbit 36,000 kilometers above the equator, snaps a picture of the planet every 30 minutes, with resolution of up to 121 megapixels. The images are especially impressive for having been taken in a single snapshot. NASA images of the Earth are often an amalgam of several photos.
That looks awesome – more orange there than I would have thought there’d be though
