We have seen the images of the earth taken by NASA’s 64-megapixel “Blue Marble“. A Russian weather satellite, Elektro-L, has broken that record. Elektro-L has taken a 121-megapixel single image of Earth. As believed by some, the captured image shows the planet in more color and detail compared to previous imagery available.


Elektro-L was positioned at a geostationary orbit, 36,000 kilometers above the Indian Ocean. The images were obtained beginning on May 14th, and end on May 20th. The images have a resolution of 1 kilometer (0.62 mile) per pixel. The satellite captured the Earth in one shot instead of a collection of pictures from multiple flybys stitched together. The images were taken in four different wavelengths of light – three visible and one infrared. The infrared light is reflected by forests and vegetation, which appear orange in the image.

Russia Elektro-L No.1 Earth image

James Drake, who processed the image, collected more than 350 full-resolution photos from the NTs OMZ (Russian Research Center for Earth Operative Monitoring), created several videos of Earth. So far, till now, this is the highest-resolution image of Earth. You can access the zoomable version of the image at planet–earth.ca
