This is "real" but only in the sense that it requires extensive HDR to arrive at the image. It`s basically several images at different exposure levels merged into one.

It`s not real. It`s one of those "where`s the daylight" programs.

Yeah that image has to be a composite. There is no way to see the ocean floor in visible light from space and the chances of capturing a cloudless day of this scope and at this specific time are astronomically slim.

Incidentally, this line is called the Solar Terminator. Which just sounds bad ass.

TheShmoo: Yeah, I`ve always wondered how they can see the ocean rifts and valleys from space when light doesn`t travel down that far into the ocean.
