Earth As Seen from 900 Million Miles Away (4 pics)

Posted by Raya in Lifestyle » Science   25 Jul 2013   / 4786 views

This rare photo of Earth was taken from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft that is currently orbiting Saturn. Earth appears as a small blue dot as it is taken from the outer solar system and is only visible when the camera is pointed towards the sun. This particular photo occurred during a total eclipse where the sun was blanked out by Saturn but provided enough light to keep Earth in view.
 

Bonus picture: Earth from Mercury, 61 million miles away.
