A rare joint video of the Earth and the Moon

Only in rare cases did the Earth and the Moon be photographed together. One of the most impressive joint photo shoots took place 25 years ago, in December. Then the spacecraft “Galileo”, was on the orbit of Jupiter, using the optical zoom and watched our inseparable pair from a distance of about fifteen distances between our world and his only companion.

The processed video combines 52 historical images with improved color characteristics. Although it may seem a little moon near the Earth, another planet no solar system is not satellite with comparable size. Sun, located far to the right, illuminated every area of ​​only half, so one part of the Earth in shadow, while the other can be seen the familiar white clouds, blue oceans and continents.
