Kaguya Spacecraft Panorama
Earth-set image shot by the HDTV onboard the KAGUYA
This still image was cut out from a moving image (tele shot) taken by the HDTV onboard the KAGUYA at 12:07 p.m. on November 7, 2007 (Japan Standard Time, JST,) then sent to the JAXA Usuda Deep Space Center.
In the image, the Moon's surface is near the South Pole, and we can see the Australian Continent (center left) and the Asian Continent (lower right) on the Earth. (In this image, the upper side of the Earth is the Southern Hemisphere, thus the Australian Continent looks upside-down.)
Note: This image is was captured with a 1080p HD Video camera, unlike the Hubble Cameras that have much higher resolution sensors. The larger sizes will show some image breakdown when viewed closely.
