This is a composite view derived from PJ25 images 8 & 14 & 18. Gerald Eichstädt processed the images and reprojected them as from a common viewpoint. I have merged the three images and adjusted the intensities so as to show details right up to the terminator. Several of the circumpolar cyclones are visible at upper right. Long linear bands of bright haze are a striking feature. These are normal features of the ‘Bland Zone’ at ~60-64 deg.N, but it is unusual for them to appear bright all the way around the globe as they do here.
