A Real Image of our Moon transiting the Earth. 🌍 🌑 My 2nd Page @TheOurDeepSpace
Captured by a NASA satellite. Should be in every classroom.
The moon passed between NASA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory and the Earth, allowing the satellite to capture this rare image of the moon’s far side in full sunlight. As the moon is tidally locked to the Earth and doesn’t rotate, we only ever see the one face from the Earth .
NASA's Space Climate Observatory is about 1.6 million km from Earth.

The Solar System travels at an average speed of 515,000 mph (828,000 km/h). Even at this rapid speed, the Solar System would take about 230 million years to travel all the way around the Milky Way. 🔭 My 2nd Page @TheOurDeepSpace
