Pale Blue Dot Revisited
In 1990, Voyager 1 turned its camera back on Earth from a distance of 6 billion kilometers (3.7 billion miles) and captured the now-famous “pale blue dot” image of Earth suspended in a ray of sunlight scattered by the camera lens. For the 30th anniversary of the photo in February 2020, NASA’s Kevin M. Gill reprocessed the image using modern image software and techniques.

Most NASA images are in the public domain. Reuse of this image is governed by NASA's image use policy.
