Video: NASA spacecraft captures Earth and moon in 'cosmic pirouette'


When NASA’s Juno spacecraft flew past Earth on October 9, the main goal was to increase the spacecraft’s speed so that it could reach Jupiter by July 2016. But one of Juno’s camera’s, designed to track faint stars, also caught this unique view of the Earth-moon system in a “cosmic pirouette”. Credit: Youtube/NASA
