After closest approach to Earth, Rosetta’s 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.
From this infrared image of Earth in red, blue and green, it is possible to distinguish between day-side (blue) and night-side (yellowish).
