      Blue Marble 2012 - Arctic View Fifteen orbits of the recently launched Suomi NPP satellite provided the VIIRS instrument enough time (and longitude) to gather the pixels for this synthesized view of Earth showing the Arctic, Europe, and Asia. Suomi NPP orbits the Earth about 14 times each day and observes nearly the entire surface. The NPP satellite continues key data records that are critical for climate change science.

      Earth captured on its entirety from an altitude of 512 miles (824 kilometers) over the North Pole. The Arctic view of the Blue Marble is not a single photo. Captured by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on board the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership satellite, it took 15 orbits to "gather the pixels for this synthesized view of Earth," according to NASA.
