Moon rising over Earths horizon

Moon rising over Earths horizon, composite image. The blue haze of Earths atmosphere can be seen above the horizon. Earth is thought to be the only planet in the solar system that can support life. The Moon (at centre) has a diameter just over a quarter of the Earth s. It orbits at a distance of around 385, 000 kilometres, taking nearly 30 days for one orbit. It does not have an atmosphere and is a heavily cratered and barren piece of rock

EDITORS COMMENTS
This breathtaking composite image captures the moon rising over Earth's horizon, showcasing the mesmerizing blue haze of our planet's atmosphere. As the only known celestial body capable of sustaining life, Earth stands out against the vastness of space. The moon, positioned at the center of this composition, appears significantly smaller than its terrestrial counterpart with a diameter just over a quarter that of Earth. Orbiting at an average distance of approximately 385,000 kilometers from us, our lunar companion takes nearly 30 days to complete one orbit around our planet. Unlike Earth, however, the moon lacks an atmosphere and is characterized by its desolate landscape adorned with countless craters. This photograph not only highlights the beauty and fragility of our home in space but also serves as a reminder of humanity's unique position within the universe. It invites contemplation about our place in cosmic history and sparks curiosity about other planets that may harbor life beyond what we currently know. Science Photo Library has masterfully captured this awe-inspiring moment where two worlds meet—a testament to their dedication in bringing us closer to understanding and appreciating both our own planet and the wonders that lie beyond it.
