NASA’s Amazing ‘Blue Marble’ Hi-Def Photo Of Earth

In January, NASA released what it called “the most amazing high definition image of Earth – Blue Marble 2012.” The image was taken aboard the Suomi NPP satellite and is a composite image made from a number of swaths of the Earth’s surface taken on January 4, 2012. I think I can see my house down there!
