Whole Earth (Blue Marble 2000)

Whole Earth. Composite satellite image of Earth centred on the Americas. This is Blue Marble 2000, one of the most detailed Earth images ever made. It was done to update the original " blue marble" images taken by Apollo astronauts. It is the result of the combination of data from three Earth-observing satellites. A GOES satellite took the overall Earth image, SeaWiFS gathered ocean colour data and the AVHRR instruments on POES satellites mapped the vegetation. Hurricane Linda, a huge spiral storm system, is at centre left. Relief features have been exaggerated by 50 times. The Moon (upper left) has been superimposed on the image, and is not to scale

EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning print captures the beauty and complexity of our planet like never before. Known as "Whole Earth (Blue Marble 2000)" this composite satellite image provides a detailed view of Earth centered on the Americas. It is considered one of the most remarkable Earth images ever created, surpassing even the original "blue marble" photographs taken by Apollo astronauts. To produce this masterpiece, data from three different Earth-observing satellites was combined. A GOES satellite captured the overall image of our planet, while SeaWiFS gathered ocean color data. The AVHRR instruments on POES satellites mapped out vegetation patterns across continents. This comprehensive approach allowed for an unprecedented level of detail and accuracy. In this awe-inspiring image, Hurricane Linda takes center stage with its massive spiral storm system dominating the frame. Relief features have been exaggerated to emphasize geographical formations such as mountains in regions like the Andes and Rockies. The Moon also makes an appearance in the upper left corner, serving as a reminder of our celestial neighbor's presence in space but not to scale relative to Earth. This extraordinary photograph showcases not only NASA's technological advancements but also highlights our planet's natural wonders - from swirling clouds over vast oceans to majestic mountain ranges that shape landscapes around us. It serves as a testament to humanity's ongoing exploration and understanding of our home planet through meteorology, earth sciences, and remote sensing technologies.
