big blue marble

The most detailed true-color images of the entire Earth to date.
On the second page, closeups at one kilometer per pixel, including a view of the deforestation of the Amazon (shockingly vast).
So beautiful...

Amazing! That close up IS disturbing, though.

It IS an amazing planet, huh? I love that you can see the atmosphere -- makes the place look SO naked and vulnerable.

And damn, wouldn't you know it? Fog rolled in and you can't see my house!
