NASA – NASA’s Deep Impact Films Earth as an Alien World
During a full Earth rotation, images obtained by Deep Impact at a 15-minute cadence have been combined to make a color video. During the video, the moon enters the frame (because of its orbital motion) and transits Earth, then leaves the frame. Other spacecraft have imaged Earth and the moon from space, but Deep Impact is the first to show a transit of Earth with enough detail to see large craters on the moon and oceans and continents on Earth.

探査機が、地球の周りをまわる月の動画を撮影。こういう絵をリアルなものとしてみられるっていうのは、この時代ならでは。
地球と月をとらえた絵ってあまりなかったと思うけど、あらためて、月って大きいねぇ。ちょっと怖いくらい。
