Print resolution image of the Earth cropped to mostly show the southern hemisphere. At the time of creation, the team wasn't sure how much of the southern hemisphere was going to be used in the final poster image.

This image was generated for the NASA "Loop" Science On a Sphere poster. The land data used is from NASA's Next Generation Blue Marble. Clouds are from NASA/Goddard's Global Modeling & Assimilation Office.
