Earth over the lunar limb from Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter
Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter used both narrow- and wide-angle cameras to capture this view of a colorful Earth beyond the lunar limb on October 12, 2015. The Moon's surface is a grayscale narrow-angle camera photo; Earth has been colorized with wide-angle camera data.

DSCOVR took a photo of Earth at very nearly the same time.
