A timelapse of Planet Earth from the Elektro-L, a geostationary satellite orbiting 40000km above the Earth. It creates a 121 megapixel image every 30 minutes with four visible and infrared light wavelengths. The infra-red was originally orange but I have changed it to green. The images are "masked" by a circular barrier that blocks out the light of the Sun and other stars. This is to prevent damage to the camera by exposure to direct sunlight. The images have been interpolated (blended) to create a smooth animation.
