Most Amazing High Definition Image of Earth – Blue Marble 2012 on Flickr

Flickr has published two amazing high-def photos of earth from one of NASA’s earth observing satellite – Suomi NPP. The photos are created by joining several high def photos and joining them together, as explained here.

The original photo of the western hemisphere shown above is available on Flickr with a resolution of 8000×8000 or 64 megapixels! (link to the original, beware of the size!)
