Chinese satellite captures moon and Earth like you've never seen them

This Photo Shows the Dark Side of the Moon and Earth in the Same Shot

This is what the Earth looks like from the dark side of the Moon

Earth photobombs the far side of the moon in this color-corrected photo taken by China's Longjiang-2 microsatellite on February 4, 2019, at 10:20 a.m. EST (1520 GMT).

On Jan. 3, 2019, the Chinese spacecraft Chang'e 4 safely landed on the floor of the Moon's Von Kármán crater (186 kilometer diameter) located within an even larger impact crater known as the South Pole-Aitken basin roughly 2,500 kilometers in diameter and 13 kilometers deep -the largest impact crater in the Solar System.

A stunning image taken by China's Longjiang-2 satellite on 3 February shows a rare perspective - a giant backside of the Moon with a tiny planet Earth nearby. The Dwingeloo telescope downloaded the photo from the satellite this morning. It's now in orbit around the Moon and it entered the orbit back in Jube 2018.

Harris traded to Sixers in multiplayer deal with Clippers
Embiid is on the first year of a contract extension, and Simmons is on year three of his rookie deal. This deal didn't come cheap for the 34-20 Sixers, who now are the No. 5 seed in the East.


Last month, China's Chang'e-4 lander created history by successfully touching down on the far side of the Moon. Longjiang-2 captured this photo during the new moon, when the Earth-facing side of the moon was completely dark and the far side was entirely illuminated instead.

Queqiao is now located in a stable position near the Moon.

Because the orbiter was 205 miles (330 km) to the east of the landing site, Chang'e 4 lander is only about two pixels across, and Yutu-2 is not detectable. "The far side of the moon has many more visible craters than the side of the moon that we can see from Earth", Dijkema wrote in a blog post about the latest image.
