NASA Captures Moon Crossing The Earth
NASA’s camera aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite has captured an amazing view of the moon as it moved in front of the sunlit side of Earth.
These images were taken between July 4 and July 5, showing the moon moving over the Indian and Pacific oceans. The North Pole is at the top of the images.
The images were captured by NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC), a four-megapixel CCD camera and telescope on the DSCOVR satellite orbiting 1 million miles from Earth. EPIC maintains a constant view of the fully illuminated Earth as it rotates, providing scientific observations of ozone, vegetation, cloud height and aerosols in the atmosphere.
