Lunar Transit of Earth


A good portion of amateur astronomers have seen one of Jupiter's moons transit its planet, but have you ever seen our moon transit our planet? NASA's Deep Impact spacecraft captured this video of a lunar transit of our own planet Earth.

This video shows Earth from 31 million miles away, in infrared, blue, and green composite. This is the first video ever to show a transit of Luna over Earth. Kind of reminds one of how small and insignificant our own planet is in the big scheme of things.
