What is Blue Marble 2012?

Earth Poster Detail

The Blue Marble 2012 is an image released by NASA that shows the planet as viewed from the Suomi NPP satellite on January 23, 2012. The satellite made 6 orbits while collecting data with its Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS).

The image is actually a composite of many different views stitched together to create a realistic and high-resolution satellite view of the planet.

What's Visible in the Image

Probably the first thing you'll notice of the image is the cloud coverage. The patterns of clouds are unique and vary a great deal from location to location.

The land in the image is also clear and vividly shows landforms such as mountains, deserts, and forests.

The water throughout the image has a striking blue appearance, with portions of shallow water even appearing an aqua or teal color.
