When NASA's Juno spacecraft flew past Earth on Oct. 9, 2013, it received a boost in speed of more than 8,800 mph (about 7.3 kilometer per second), which set it on course for a July 4, 2016, rendezvous with Jupiter.

One of Juno's sensors, a special kind of camera optimized to track faint stars, also had a unique view of the Earth-moon system. The result was an intriguing, low-resolution glimpse of what our world would look like to a visitor from afar.


Amazing.

That's makes me feel how utterly alone we are in the universe.

That was achingly beautiful.

Many thanks for posting, S&F.

Wonder if anyone else in the cosmos is detecting our little planet......

I suppose that they had to spend most of the money on other more important things than a good camera seeing they are heading way out there ...You would think though that a bunch of people could chip in for a good camera ...It sure would be nice to see real clear pictures of our earth ..

I think this is a great reminder of just how small and insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things.

Thank you sharing, I'm going to save this in my youtube favorites.

Maybe they could borrow a camera from the NSA

I'm sorry if I offended you and for not having such an optimistic views on events in the Universe (beleive it or not Universe is mostly a violent place), but we're all going to die from an asteroid strike!
Good luck mate.
I beleive image is an artist presentation, therefore it's art.

Why release the video in a horrible quality? surely they could have released it in a batter state.

Lovely! Just lovely!
I know we all moan about our home planet, and what goes on here, but seeing it like that makes me smile. It's ours. We should be proud.


Thanks for sharing.

Most likely. That is, if intelligent life is common in the Galaxy.

Anyone within 1,000 light years could probably get a similar view with a set of telescopes costing no more than Iraq War cost the US.

That's at our level of technology.

I'm sure anyone older than us will have even better stuff.

Because its a cool video and its shot from a long, long distance away.

This is not the first long distance shot of the earth taken by a departing probe.

This one comes from NASA's EPOXI mission (google it):

Hi Jade.
What is that red colour on the Earth???

Wow! That was so LAME!

No disrespect to the OP, I'm not knocking the thread. My point is, WTH are these people doing with Americas money? Did someone pay for that crap?

It's a false colour image. Instead of red-green-blue filters, it uses infrared-green-blue. So the infrared is just basically picking up trees & other greenery, as well as reddish stuff, leading to over-reddening.
