GeoSphere satellite mosaic image of the whole Earth centred on North America. The pale blue Arctic icecap near the top is seen next to the white ice-covered island of Greenland. At bottom right is part of South America. Northern Europe is at top right, with the north coast of Russia along the top of the limb. The bright patch at centre right is the western coast of Africa. This view was produced by combining thousands of individual satellite frames, each chosen for a lack of cloud and the best representation of surface features.
