Caption

American continents. Satellite image of the whole Earth centred on North and South America. Colours in land areas show natural tones; sea colours give an impression of water temperatures (light blue = cool, dark blue = warm). This is a composite of thousands of images recorded by the NOAA series of weather satellites. Each image was selected for lack of cloud cover and its surface colours. The selected images were then merged as a database using a graphics supercomputer, allowing any view of the planet to be generated. This sphere is an equatorial orthographic projection.
