Data from two satellites reveal a rather stunning cloudless view of Earth, complete with an impressive 80 trillion pixels.
The mosaic of images was taken by the Sentinel-2 satellites, operated by the European Space Agency (ESA), of which there are two – Sentinel-2A (launched on June 23, 2015) and Sentinel-2b (March 7, 2017). The two satellites orbit at a height of about 790 kilometers (490 miles). The mosaic was stitched together by EOX, an Austrian mapping firm.
