NASA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite has an onboard camera. Little wonder then, it does more than simply monitoring solar winds in real-time. In its free time, the satellite captures some amazing pictures. This time around, it has recorded the Moon crossing face with the third rock from the Sun.
DSCOVR project scientist, Adam Szabo, said that, “The project recorded this event on July 5 with the same cadence and spatial resolution as the first ‘lunar photobomb’ of last year.”
The images were captured by NASA’s EPIC (Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera). Not to be confused with Red’s Epic camera used for filming Game of Thrones. NASA’s camera has four-megapixel resolution and telescope to take pictures from 1 million miles from Earth.
