Juno

Twenty-one days into its journey to Jupiter, NASA's Juno space probe captured this remarkable sight on August 26th: our planet and its moon (Earth's on the left) from approximately six million miles, nearly ten million kilometers, away. Seeing Earth from the outside, Scott Bolton, Juno's principal investigator, put it best, "We see a humbling yet beautiful view of ourselves.”

Makes ya feel reel kinda small. What a beautiful prospective.  

Beautiful, but still not on a par with the "Earth Rising" photo the moon landers took. This one brings home the desolation and unforgiving nature of the universe, where that one was definitely our tranquil, mothering home looking so serene.
