Clementine Image Collection
Full Earth Over Moon

This colorized image shows the full Earth over the lunar north pole as Clementine completes mapping on March 13, 1994. It is a clear day over Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. The angular separation between lunar horizon and Earth has been reduced for illustration purposes. The large crater at the bottom of the image is Plaskett.

This image is a part of the Image Library sponsored by The Center for Space Research - University of Texas at Austin and Texas Space Grant Consortium. It was taken from the The Naval Research Laboratory's Clementne web site.
