Caption

GeoSphere image of the whole Earth centred on Africa. Cloud cover data from a NASA satellite have been added, and the whole image superimposed on a starfield background. GeoSphere is a composite of thousands of images made by the NOAA series of weather satellites. Each image was selected for lack of cloud cover and the representation of the surface colours. The selected images were then merged as a database using a graphics supercomputer which allows any view of the planet to be generated.
