Wanting to give us poor saps stuck down here on earth a look at what astronauts in space see, programmer John Walker developed this cool site which shows the Earth from 147,354,066 kilometers — or 91,561,571.7 miles — above.
Tapping into satellite data, Walker’s Earth — which is easily pan-able — even shows shadow and sunlight in real-time. (I captured this thumbnail at, oh, 5:33 am.) Big, bold, and bursting with color, Walker’s giant Earth is worth playing with.
Boy, the Sahara looks dry.
