High quality Galileo space picture, poster, slide, or Duratrans backlit transparency. NASA photograph PIA00076. Wide variety of sizes.


This color image of the Earth was obtained by the Galileo spacecraft on December 11, 1990, when the spacecraft was about 1.5 million miles from the Earth. The color composite used images taken through the red, green and violet filters.

Africa stretches from the center to the top of the picture with the Arabian Peninsula off to its right. The white, sunlit continent of Antarctica is at the bottom.

This is a frame of the Galileo Earth spin movie, a 500-frame time-lapse motion picture showing a 25-hour period of Earth's rotation and atmospheric dynamics.
