Maldives in Blue Marble

Blue Marble

Now the Maldives is front and (sort of) centre to the flip side of one of the “world’s” most iconic photos. The conventional image of the ‘blue marble’ portrait of planet Earth features North and South America, but now NASA has remedied the balance with an equally striking image of the Eastern Hemisphere.

For regularly hourly updates on the ‘blue marble’, check out “Satellite Views” which provides the NASA imagery satellites which publish regular updates to their website. I often enjoy taking a peek in the run up to a Maldives visit just to see the cloudless skies over the azure Indian Ocean.
