Earthrise and Earthset

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on November 15, 2007

Japan’s KAGUYA (which translates as Selene) lunar orbiter is carrying one of the first space-rated HDTV cameras. It’s still in shakedown, but has started sending back some spectacular imagery. JAXA, the Japanese space agency, has turned some of the imagery into two rather wonderful movies – one of Earthrise, and one of Earthset.

The two Flash movies are quite slow to load, so I grabbed a couple of screen caps of Earthset.
