The Full Moon? How about the Full Earth?

Back in November we reported about some amazing images released by the Japanese Kayuga spacecraft orbiting the moon, reminiscent of the famous Apollo 8 photograph of earthrise over the moon. Now, Kayuga has done it again, only presenting a stunning image of the full disc of the Earth above the lunar horizon.

If you read the press release, you will find a high resolution version where you can see more detail on the earth’s disc. Also, you can view the movies that were taken at the time.
