These two images of Earth were taken at nearly the same time on October 12, 2015, one from lunar orbit, the other from the Sun-Earth L1 point. Their different appearance has to do with the different-color filters used and the different way the images were processed. The LROC image (brighter blue) was taken at 12:18:17; the more muted DSCOVR image was taken at 12:03:47.
