Found this APOD pic in their archive (fairly recent) of a mosaic of the 'blue marble' picture of Earth. Click to embiggen or mouse over to see original.

Have to agree with Freddy, Amazing pics, I can see why you want to turn the wider field one into a wallpaper, I don’t like bright wallpapers, too much on the eyes but that one is perfect.

I guess the mosaic ones are done by a computer or an extremely patient artist.  Roll Eyes
