Selene—the Japanese lunar orbiter that is mapping the moon and searching for Nazis—has captured one of the most stunning views of Earth from the Moon, one in which you can't see it: A penumbral eclipse.


Even while it's all black, in the video you can see the Earth rising over the Moon's surface and hiding the Sun at the same time. It must be lonely for Selene up there, but boy, what a view. [JAXA]
