An Alien's-Eye View of Earth

When I first created this blog, I decided to include a “Science” category … and then proceeded to never use it. But today I ran across a science item that I simply couldn’t NOT share.

Below is video footage of the Earth taken by NASA’s EPOXI spacecraft from 31 million miles away. At about 13 seconds in, you see the moon pass directly in front of the Earth. I’m not sure exactly why this gives me goosebumps, but it does.
