Neat! :) :)

paraphrasing my post from a similar picture posted in The Beach....

There is no such thing as a cloudless day over a scale that large.

The fact that the greyline is so clear would indicate a geosynchronus orbit of a high orbit satalite. Therefore it could not map the whole earth at one time.

Also since there is the greyline in this picture. It is impossible to see both night and day at the same time, since day would make night completely black, or night visible would make day completely white.

So it has to be a composite picture. Of possibly hundrerds of pictures.

But it's still very pretty.
