This look at the East hemisphere "is a composite of six separate orbits taken on January 23, 2012 by the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership satellite. Both of these new 'Blue Marble' images are images taken by a new instrument flying aboard Suomi NPP, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite."
I wish it didn't have that banding, though. The Western side looks a lot better, as does the original Blue Marble. [NASA Goddard Flickr]
