NASA has released a new set of photographs which form the most detailed true-colour image of the entire Earth ever created. The photographs are taken at a resolution of 1km and include the land, seas and even clouds and sea ice. Much of the data for this image was gathered by NASA’s Terra satellite, from an altitude of 700km. An additional image shows actual city lights superimposed over a darkened version of the photograph.
