Full-Earth Rise

The Japanese lunar orbiter Kaguya beamed back a short video clip of full-earth rise as seen from the moon. We are used to see sunrise every morning and watching full-earth rise gives us another feeling of humility in term of how small we are living on the surface of the earth.

The Japanese lunar orbiter Kaguya has completed its main mission. It will purposely slam into the moon's surface where the impact is expected to occur on the near-side of the moon.
