"L´alba della terra "sulla luna ripresa dalla sonda giapponese in alta risoluzione in orbita attorno alla luna:



It's always exciting to see other views from space - consider the vast difference in the image quality of the ESA mars orbiter compared to the recent USA probes. Both are great ... but the colors and detial on the ESA pix are incredible .. but so are the NASA ones.

Anyhow, here's a VERY recent view (as of nov 5 2007) of the Earth as seen from the moon .. here's the info

"The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) have successfully performed the world's first high-definition image taking of an Earth-rise* by the lunar explorer "KAGUYA" (SELENE,) which was injected into a lunar orbit at an altitude of about 100 km on October 18, 2007 (Japan Standard Time. Following times and dates are all JST.)

The Apollo project was the first mission to take images of Earth rising over the Moon. The KAGUYA successfully shot high-definition images of the Earth-rise showing an impressive image of the blue Earth which was the only floating object in pitch-dark space. These are the world's first high-definition earth images taken from about 380,000 km away from the earth in space.

The image taking was performed by the KAGUYA's onboard high definition television (HDTV) for space use developed by NHK. The moving image data acquired by the KAGUYA was received at the JAXA Usuda Deep Space Center, and processed by NHK.

The satellite was confirmed to be in good health through telemetry data received at the Usuda station.

* Note: we use the expression "Earth-rise" in this press release, but the Earth-rise is a phenomenon seen only from satellites that travel around the Moon, such as the KAGUYA and the Apollo space ship. The Earth-rise cannot be observed by a person who is on the Moon as they can always see the Earth at the same position."

"Earth rise/set Images by the HDTV onboard the KAGUYA.

The rising image Wide Shot taken from near the North Pole, and the Arabian Peninsula and Indian Ocean can be observed on the Earth.

The setting image Tele Shot taken from near the South Pole, and we can see the Australian Continent (center left)
and the Asian Continent (lower right)
on the Earth.
(In this image, the upper side of the Earth is the Southern Hemisphere, thus the Australian Continent looks upside-down.)"

stupendo..pensate che..se provate ad isolarvi sulla luna,e guardate quel minuscolo pianeta azzurro e cosi' lontano...ignorate di cosa sia..non immaginereste mai di tutte le meraviglie che contiene,è come guardare un qualsiasi altro pianeta..e ppure guardatevi intorno,dalla natira a ogni piccolo gesto di vita quotidiana..quanta vita..
è pure da questi piccoli pensieri e sensazioni che sono sicuro dell'esistenza di moltissimi altri pianeti"vivi" nell'universo..
e chissa' che meraviglie..
