The image shows the moon passing between the NASA climate observatory and Earth. It was captured by a NASA camera on board the Deep Space Climate Observatory on July 16, 2015 over the space of five hours. In the image it shows the fully illuminated ‘dark side’ of the Moon that is not visible from Earth.

The images were acquired by NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC), a four megapixel camera and telescope on the DSCOVR satellite, which orbits about 1 million miles from Earth.
