The moon passed between Nasa's Deep Space Climate Observatory and the Earth, allowing the satellite to capture this rare image of the moon's far side in full sunlight. We normally don't see this side of the moon. As the moon is tidally locked to the earth and doesn't rotate, we only ever see the one face from the earth. Awesome shot!

A NASA camera on the Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite has returned its first view of the entire sunlit side of Earth from one million miles away.  This color image of Earth was taken by NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC), a four megapixel CCD camera and telescope. The image was generated by combining three separate images to create a photographic-quality image.

Africa is front and center in this image of Earth taken by a NASA camera on the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite. The image, taken July 6 from a vantage point one million miles from Earth, was one of the first taken by NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC). Central Europe is toward the top of the image with the Sahara Desert to the south, showing the Nile River flowing to the Mediterranean Sea through Egypt. The photographic-quality color image was generated by…

DSCOVR, a Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite proposed by Al Gore. Blocked by the Bush administration, it could 'expose the hollow ignorance of climate change denialists and drive a more constructive convergence of global efforts to head off catastrophic global warming.'

NASA photographed a huge avalanche from space in what it calls 'a stroke of luck' - A mountain scientist has discovered a rare picture of an avalanche taken by a NASA satellite more than 20 years ago. That an avalanche was photographed from space is "a stroke of luck," NASA's Earth Observatory said in a July 7 post , shortly after the image was found. Such a photo is highly unusual because avalanches only last seconds or minutes, and NASA's satellite fleet covers some 200 million square…
