The Highest Resolution Image of our Planet
It’s been taken by Russia’s latest weather satellite, the Electro-L. Elektro-L is now orbiting Earth on a geostationary orbit 36,000 kilometers above the equator. The satellite took the photos at a massive 121 megapixels. Electro-L’s images were made combining three visible light wavelengths and one infrared, according to Gizmodo. I just love to have this opportunity to showcase this picture in my blog.
