What Earth and Moon Look like to Aliens.


Check out this video NASA's Deep Impact Sapcecraft made, of the moon passing in front of Earth, viewed from 31 million miles away. Kind of cool to think that this is how aliens might see us from somewhere off in the distant universe.

The clip combines several images of the moon rotating around the Earth in color. According to NASA, Deep Impact is the only spacecraft to show the moon passing around the earth in detail: you can actually see our oceans and continents, and the moon's large craters.
