The Earth from Saturn
NASA’s Cassini spacecraft captured this image of Saturn eclipsing the Sun and, as a bonus, Earth appears just above the rings of the giant planet.
Juno’s image of the Earth-Moon system
This fascinating picture of the Earth and Moon was taken by the solar powered Juno spacecraft as it made its way towards Jupiter from a distance of 9.7 million kilometres (6 million miles).
A stunning view of the Earth at night
Suomi NPP, 2012
This incredible ‘Black Marble’ composite image was taken by the Suomi NPP satellite in April 2012, showing the Earth lit up at night by a mixture of artificial lights and the Sun.
The day the Earth smiled
This incredible image of Earth, the blue dot of light to the centre-right of the image, was taken by the Cassini spacecraft from Saturn, 1.45 billion kilometres (900 million miles) away, on 19 July 2013.
An interplanetary first
While Cassini imaged Earth from Saturn on 19 July, NASA’s Messenger spacecraft did the same from Mercury 98 million kilometres (61 million miles) from our planet, the first cross-Solar System interplanetary image taken by two spacecraft simultaneously.
