Good news everyone! NASA joined Instagram so now we can all enjoy lovely photos of the earthrise and earthset from space. Writes NASA about the photo above:
This image taken July 20, 1969 from Apollo 11 shows the Earth rising over the limb of the moon much as the Harvest Moon does from our planetary perspective. Over the stark, scarred surface of the moon, the Earth floats in the void of space, a watery jewel swathed in ribbons of clouds.
I want more like this!
