November 13, 2008--A collage of pictures captured by NASA's Terra satellite shows Earth as it was on November 13, except for the poles, which were not imaged.

The individual pictures were taken by Terra's onboard Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS). MODIS images of Earth are frequently updated on the U.S. space agency's OnEarth Web site, though without the globe effect shown here.
