The Japanese meteorological satellite Himawari-8 has captured the true tone that presents the Earth from space, reports  Daily Mail. From a distance of 35,790 kilometers, the satellite shows how our planet looks before filters and image enhancements are made.


The use of the term “true color” is something of a misnomer, since the satellite image does not accurately reflect how would the planet the human eye, says the daily. Most of the images we see on Earth featuring color corrections to show how humans would. This image, however, was taken in multiple bands and shows the natural appearance of the Earth from space.

The image of very high resolution, includes stunning details of the Earth, including clouds, oceans and the vast desert of Australia.
