Some of you may have seen this video before, but I just saw it for the first time today. It is a video of Earth, taken by the MESSENGER spacecraft as it made a flyby of Earth on it's journey to Mercury. This is not a CGI, but a real video from the spacecraft. The video comprises one full rotation of the Earth.
