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 (DSCOVR) satellite returned its first view of the entire sunlit side of Earth from one million miles away.  The color images of Earth from NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) are generated by combining three separate images to create a photographic-quality image. The camera takes a series of 10 images using different narrowband filters to produce a variety of science products.

A new satellite keeping tabs on Earth from space captured an incredible animation of the moon passing across the face of the sunlit side of the planet.   The Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR for short) caught sight of the moon and Earth from the spacecraft's position about 1 million miles from the planet.
