    Photo of earth from a Russian weather satellite, Elektro-L No. 1, which "scans the Earth in visible and infrared wavelengths, observing natural phenomena and processes on the surface of the planet, according to officials at the Russian Federal Space Agency's Research Center for Earth Operative Monitoring. By combining different wavelengths of light, the planet's lush features and dramatic colors are emphasized."

    Breathtaking View of Earth Taken by Russian Satellite Think of it as an amped up version of the iconic “Blue Marble” image. A new photo of Earth from space highlights the striking beauty and intensely rich colors of our home planet. The photo was taken by a Russian weather satellite, called Elektro-L No.1, which flies in a geostationary orbit more than 22,000 miles above the Earth’s equator. The image was posted by James Drake on the Planet Earth website.

    Happy Earth Day!! This is the highest resolution image of Earth ever made, 121 megapixels. That’s an amazing 0.62 miles per pixel. It was taken by Russia’s latest weather satellite, the Electro-L, which is orbiting Earth on a geostationary orbit 36,000 kilometers above the equator, sending photographs of the entire planet every 30 minutes.
