What home looks like from 22,236 miles away

A new and improved portrait of the home planet, photographed by the Himawari-8 weather satellite in geostationary orbit

I don’t know about you, but I never tire of high-resolution images like this one from the Himawari-8 satellite showing the entire disk of our home planet.

It’s a new and improved version of a now-familiar view. So make sure to click on the image to open it in a new window. And then click on it again to zoom in.
