Full-disc Moon and Earth from Longjiang-2
After a radio-quiet period to avoid interfering with the Chang’e 4 lunar landing, Longjiang-2 became active again on 13 January 2019. The first opportunity to take photos of Earth and Moon were on 3 February, on which a command was sent to take a timelapse. The first image from this timelapse was downloaded with the Dwingeloo telescope on 4 February 2019. For the first time, the entire Moon and Earth are in view.
