Iconic photo: This is how the Orion spacecraft photographed the Earth – Space – Science and technology

The Orion spacecraft of the American agency NASA took this picture of our planet and the Moon on November 28.

As seen from Orion, our planet had just “passed” the Moon when this photo was taken, as Orion was in lunar orbit.
