Behold, the Biggest Selfie Party the World Has Seen

May 23 2014 - 5:15am

Remember all the global selfies the world took [1] a month ago for NASA to commemorate Earth Day? Just as promised, NASA took the opportunity to create a giant mosaic of all the 36,422 individual selfies that were taken and tagged.

In the past few weeks, NASA combined your pictures with images of each hemisphere that were captured on April 22 by satellite. The noncloud, diagonal stripes you see? That's the reflection of sunlight off ocean waters.

The end result is a zoomable 3.2-gigapixel image [2] that you can scan and explore to take a close look all the selfies. How cool! Do you see yours?
