A breathtaking image by NASA: Moon crossing the Earth

From a Million Miles Away, NASA Camera Shows Moon Crossing Face of Earth

This is another amazing image from NASA. The moon was crossing between their camera and the Earth and was illuminated by the sun.

A NASA camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite captured a unique view of the moon as it moved in front of the sunlit side of Earth last month.

In the image, we can see the fully illuminated  “dark side” of the moon which has never before been seen on the Earth.

NASA also posted this short animated video, showing the Moon passing the Earth.
