Earth - Clementine

Clementine color mosaic of full Earth

Clementine color mosaic of the full Earth taken while the spacecraft was orbiting the moon. Over 70 high resolution images were taken and put together to form this mosaic. Africa can be seen to the right, South America at lower left, and North America and Europe at the top mostly hidden by clouds. The Earth is 12,750 km in diameter and north is at roughly 11:30.
