After closest approach to Earth, VIRTIS took a series of high-resolution images of our planet in visible and infrared light from a distance of 250 000 kilometres and with a resolution of 62 kilometres per pixel. The images are shown as they were acquired, without rotating them. The North Pole is on the left of the image. This animation was produced using visible light images taken in red, green and blue light to obtain a true-colour Earth.
