Earth-Set on the Moon
"Earth-set" images shot by the HDTV onboard the KAGUYA, Japanese lunar spacecraft, now in orbit around the Moon, were today released by JAXA. The time laspe images are the Earth setting to the horizon near the Moon's South Pole. It took about 70 seconds from the left image to the right image (complete setting.) The movie of Earth-rise on the Moon is equally amazing but may require a few minutes of time to download too. See the YouTube.com post of Earth-rise, Earth-set.
