Earth and the Moon from Clementine
Earth and the Moon from Clementine Clementine peered over the limb of the Moon on March 13, 1994 to view a distant, nearly full-disk Earth. Naval Research Laboratory

 The large crater at the bottom of the view is Plaskett at 82°N, 180°W. In the original image, Earth was much farther above the Moon; the image has been modified to make it better fit on a computer screen.
