The adventures and experiences documented…

The Video taken by NASA’s Juno spacecraft as it zipped past Earth on Oct. 9, may be imperfect, but it will give you chills.

Captured with sensors designed to track faint stars rather than rocky planets, the video begins just as the Earth-and-moon system has come into Juno’s view, 600,000 miles in the distance.

As Juno flies in closer, you can see the small white dot of the moon gliding silently around a fuzzy blue Earth. Closer still, and the moon moves off into the margins as our spinning planet takes up more of the field of view.
