Highest resolution image ever taken of our planet

There's no denying that the higher resolution a photograph, the more awe-inspiring it looks. There are some high-resolution cameras here on earth, but NASA uses some the highest resolution cameras humans have ever created for taking photos from space. The image you see here is the highest resolution image of the earth ever taken.

The image was shot using a 121-megapixel photo and the strange colors result from a combination of visible and infrared wavelengths of light. Infrared light is used to see plants, which is why parts of the planet that are normally green and lush look brown in this photograph. No matter the colors, that is a very beautiful image.
