Earth and Moon in space

MESSENGER, NASA's "mission to conduct the first orbital study of the innermost planet", is in orbit around the Sun and positioned to study the elusive planet Mercury. A few months ago, the space craft looked back to Earth to capture a lovely view of our planet together with the Moon.

If you haven't seen Mercury itself yet, now is a good time soon after sunset, look for the planet low in the west, where it shares the twilight with Saturn, Mars and brilliant Venus.

nothing more to see. please move along.
