What a View of Our Double Planet System

Hey Space Placers!

Watch this video a few times

What we are seeing is our "double planet" system of the Earth and the Moon. I am not aware of another video like this showing the transit of the Moon across the Earth in such detail. A similar video was taken by NASA's Seep Impact spacecraft but it was 31 million miles away.

The video was taken a million miles away from a NASA weather satellite that monitors space weather and can observe the Earth as well.

This really puts our precious planet in perspective in a way we have not seen before.

Enjoy the view.
