A version of The Blue Marble.

Date This image was originally uploaded to the English Wikipedia by Deglr6328 on 04:05, 8 Mar 2005.
Source The image is from [1] (NASA mission AS17, roll 148, frame 22727), specifically the 4400x4600 version available there.
Author The photo was taken by the crew of Apollo 17 on their way to the Moon. Antarctica, Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, Madagascar, and part of Asia are visible.
Deglr6328's comments on modifying the image:
I cropped the image and adjusted only the brightness/contrast and gamma in photoshop to, what appears to my eye, be a better color match to what might actually be seen from space than the color in Image:The Earth seen from Apollo 17.jpg, which I feel is too dark/red and just odd looking (like an old faded photo). I tried to match the color in the version I uploaded to other examples of this shot as provided by NASA on various pages of theirs.
