Illustration for article titled Amazing new image of the Earth and the Moon taken outside lunar orbit

China's National Space Agency has released this stunning image of the Earth and the Moon from an extraordinary vantage point. Taken yesterday by their Chang'e 5 spacecraft on, the photo shows the far side of the moon with the Earth on the background.


The spacecraft will return to Earth on October 31 (using the American time zones—it will be November 1 in China.)
