First View of Earth from the DSCOVR Satellite from One Million Miles from Earth

This view from a NASA camera is the first view of the entire sunlit side of Earth from the DSCOVR satellite from one million miles away.  The image was taken on July 6, 2015.  A daily series of new images covering the entire earth will be provided on a dedicated web page starting by September and these images will be posted on the web page within 12 to 36 hours after they're taken.  EarthObserver will of course link to those images once they're available.
