Before & After: Comparison of DSCOVR and LROC images of Earth
Before & After: Comparison of DSCOVR and LROC images of Earth 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. NASA / GSFC / ASU
