Earth from DSCVR

The first photograph captured by the camera onboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCVR) satellite, which orbits approximately 1 million miles away from Earth on July 6, 2015. This image was made by combining three separate photos to get a full picture of the planet. DSCVR’s camera will continue to provide a daily stream of Earth images, allowing for both real-time and ongoing observation of the planet. In this image, North and Central America are visible, along with the centrally-located shallow, turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.Read the full story →
