Happy Full Disk Friday! Apr. 15, 2016

From NOAA Satellite and Information Service:

Happy #FullDiskFriday! As we head into the weekend, we want to take a moment to step back, 22,240 miles to be exact, and appreciate our amazing planet.

Each Friday we feature one of the many full disk Earth images captured by NOAA satellites. This week, our image comes to us from the GOES-East satellite. It was created by combining data from the satellite's visible channel 1 and infrared channel 4, with a colored land image from the NASA Blue Marble Next Generation data set. This image of the entire Western Hemisphere was taken today, April 15, 2016, at 1:45pm EDT, during the peak of sunlight.
