This image captured by the newly launched Suomi satellite shows the northern hemisphere of the Earth. The satellite circled the Earth 15 times to capture the visual data used for the picture. Although the bright swirl of Arctic ice dominates the top of the globe, looking a bit farther south, and toward the left side of the frame, you can see the green of England and Ireland peeking between clouds. But it's the vast, dry reaches of Asia, Saudi Arabia and the Sahara that dominate the rest of the image.

I can see my house from up here! I need a new house! To me it looks like a marble in that picture.

It's still kind of surreal to see the whole planet like that.
Yeah, it'll probably always look beautiful from up there.
Unfortunately, we're stuck here at ground level with the grim realities of life, death and taxes.

It only takes a photo like this to remind me of how insignificant I am.
