A little perspective from NASA's Jupiter-bound Juno spacecraft.
It’s not much to look at — until you realize what’s happening.
On its October 9 flyby of Earth (to gain a boost toward Jupiter), NASA’s Juno spacecraft captured a scene no one has witnessed before, or not like this — the moon orbiting the Earth. The “movie” was created from images taken by a star tracker camera, so it isn’t the best quality. But like other spacecraft views of a distant Earth, it offers us something priceless: perspective.
