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!

Trump to cancel 4 NASA programs key to understanding climate change. On the chopping block are the Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem satellite; the Orbiting Carbon Observatory-3 experiment; the Climate Absolute Radiance and Refractivity Observatory Pathfinder mission; and the Deep Space Climate Observatory.

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.

The Moon has made a habit out of photobombing NASA. Last week, while a NASA camera on the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite was trying to observe the atmosphere, the Moon swung in between Earth and DSCOVR for a brief but remarkable shot.
