News: NASA Releases Vivid New Image of ‘Earthrise’ Over the Moon’s Surface

Nasa Earthrise

NASA has released a gorgeous new high-res image of the Earth rising beyond the Moon’s horizon, shot by the Lunar Reconnaisance Orbiter.

Said Noah Petro, Deputy Project Scientist for LRO at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland”The image is simply stunning. The image of the Earth evokes the famous ‘Blue Marble’ image taken by Astronaut Harrison Schmitt during Apollo 17, 43 years ago, which also showed Africa prominently in the picture.”
