Look At This Stunning View Of The Dark Side Of The Moon Passing In Front Of The Earth



This stunning view of the moon passing in front of the Earth was taken by NASA's Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite on July 16th.

The satellite is positioned 1.6 million km from the Earth and has a permanent view of the sunlit side of Earth.

The images show the fully illuminated ‘dark side’ of the moon that is not visible from Earth.

From next month, the camera will provide a series of Earth images allowing study of daily variations over the entire globe and Nasa will post daily colour images to a dedicated public website.
