Humanity’s home planet looks pretty amazing from nearly one million miles away.

The stunning image, which focuses on America, was taken by the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) and is the satellite’s first view of the entire sunlit side of Earth.

This has prompted US President Barack Obama to tweet about the need to protect the “only planet we have.”

The colour images of Earth from Nasa’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) on the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite are generated by combining three separate images to create a photographic-quality image.

NASA says that the image clicked on July 6 clearly shows desert sand structures, river systems and complex cloud patterns.
