Blue Marble 2012 – Arctic View, a photo by Saad Faruque on Flickr.
A very different view of the earth right above the Arctic, you can see Europe, Asia, Hint of Africa, even the place I come from. Taken by Suomi NPP captured on its entirety from an altitude of 512 miles (824 kilometers) over the North Pole
“Those pixels were captured by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS)on board the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership satellite”- Gizmodo
