BepiColombo Spots Earth and the Moon Europe and Japan's BepiColombo spacecraft took these images of Earth and the Moon in early March 2020 as it sped towards an Earth flyby on 10 April. Before it can enter Mercury orbit in 2025, BepiColombo, which launched in 2018, must make 1 flyby of Earth, 2 flybys of Venus, and 6 flybys of Mercury. ESA/BepiColombo/MTM
