Caption: GeoSphere image of the whole Earth centred on the Americas and superimposed on a star field. Colours in land areas show natural tones, sea colours give an impression of water temperatures (light blue = cool, dark blue = warm). Cloud cover data from a NASA satellite have been added. GeoSphere is a composite of thousands of images made by the NOAA series of weather satellites. The selected images were then merged as a database using a graphics supercomputer which allows any view of the planet to be generated.
