NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, which is currently on track to catch a portion of an asteroid, has returned an impressive image of Earth and Moon in the process. The spacecraft took the image on October 2, 2017, just after it made a flyby of Earth, although the image has just been launched by NASA. At this time, the Moon was about 390,000 kilometers from Earth.

OSIRIS-REx took this image from a distance of more than 5 million kilometers from Earth, or more than 13 times the Earth-Moon distance. It was taken by combining three images of different color wavelengths. The moon lit up to make it more visible. The spacecraft was launched on September 8, 2016 but, to achieve its goal, it orbited the Sun for a year before flying beyond Earth. He made his closest approach to our planet (an altitude of 17,000 kilometers) on September 22, 2017, and took this picture 10 days later.
