Caption: Computer image of a cloud-free satellite mosaic of the whole Earth centred on Africa. The picture is a composite created from thousands of separate images recorded by the Tiros-N series of meteorological satellites of NOAA. Each Tiros image was selected to best show the characteristics of a particular region. The chosen images were compiled into a vast database using a graphics supercomputer which then generated this composite. The picture is one of the results of the GeoSphere Project, created by Tom Van Sant in Santa Monica, California. North is at the top.
