Here is a real-time full color view of the Earth from the Himawari satellite, updated every half hour or so. This geostationary weather satellite is stationed over the longitude of Japan. The view is complete with orange sunglint off the ocean. You can click on the link to see the latest update.

I previously posted this high resolution sample image in the Whole Earth Images thread. We can look around for the full resolution real-time data archive that would be about 11000 pixels wide.
